Heat oven to 350. Grease 9x13 pan. In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in 3/4 c butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat in eggs and 1/4 tsp mint extract; spread mixture into pan. Bake 23  to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. In sauce pan over low heat, melt 1/2 cup butter with chocolate chips, stirring constantly. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1/4 tsp mint extract. Pour over baked layer. Let stand 20 minutes or until slightly set. Drizzle Vanilla Glaze over top. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Cut into bars. About 24 bars.
