Brownie Layer:
  1. Whisk together cocoa and baking soda. Stir in melted butter. Add the boiling coffee and stir until the mixture thickens. Stir in the sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix in the flour, vanilla, and salt. Spread in a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, just until the brownies start to pull away from the edges of the pan.

  1. Beat the softened butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the sugar, 2 tbsp of milk, and mint extract. Stir until combined, then beat until smooth.
  3. Stir in the green gel paste or food coloring until it is the shade of green you want.
  4. Spread over the cooled brownies.
  5. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes so that the buttercream can set before adding the chocolate layer.
