Creme de Menthe style

I made these for a party one time, instead of using peppermint for the mint,I used a small amount of creme dementhe syrup, which makes the icing more green, and drizzled chocolate on top to finish. For the drizzle, melt equal amounts of butter (no subs) and Nestle's chocolate chips, mix and drizzle on top!
