Instructions
Brownie:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 13-inch x 9-inch baking pan with foil leaving a 2-inch overhang. Coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 cup butter. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add eggs and vanilla, stirring until blended.

  3. Stir in flour, 1 cup cocoa powder and salt until a batter forms.
  4. Spread evenly in prepared baking pan and bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool 15 minutes in pan. Using foil overhang transfer brownie to wire rack and cool completely.
Buttercream Frosting:
  1. Meanwhile, beat 1/2 cup butter until creamy. Reduce mixer speed and gradually add confectioners’ sugar until blended. Add milk and beat until creamy and smooth. Add green gel food coloring and beat until blended. Transfer frosting to pastry bag fitted with an open star #17 decorating tip.
