  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  5. To prepare frosting: Beat butter and 1 cup of powdered sugar until combined.
  6. Beat in remaining sugar, milk and extract until creamy. Add additional milk for creamier consistency.
  7. Spread frosting over brownies. Cut into squares or use biscuit/cookie cutter for circles.
  8. Garnish with crème de menthe candy, if desired.
