Before starting, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8-inch metal baking tin with 2 tsp softened butter. Line the base and sides of the tin with parchment paper, pressing down to adhere. (NOTE: Leave a 2-inch overhang on the sides of the tin. This helps to easily remove brownies once cooled.)
Add 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 6 tbsp butter to a medium pot over low heat. Melt, stirring constantly, until smooth and glossy, 3-4 min. Remove from heat. Whisk together eggs and white sugar in a large bowl until thick, 1-2 min. Add 1/2 tsp salt, then slowly stir in melted chocolate mixture until combined. Sprinkle over 1/2 cup flour and stir until no floury streaks remain. (NOTE: Reserve remaining flour for a future creation.)
Pour brownie batter into the prepared tin and smooth into an even layer. Bake in the middle of the oven until puffed and shiny on the surface, 22-25 min. (NOTE: Do not overbake; brownies taste best when slightly underdone. You can also place a wooden skewer into the centre, which should come out with a few moist crumbs attached when ready.) Place the tin on a wire rack and allow brownies to cool to room temp, 1 hr.
When brownies have cooled, using a sharp knife, cut into 9 equal squares. Melt 1 tbsp butter in a small microwave-safe bowl, 30 sec. Whisk together icing sugar, 1 tbsp milk and 1 tbsp melted butter until smooth. Place in a small ziplock bag and snip a small hole in one end to create an opening. Working one brownie at a time, hold the opened end of the bag over brownie and gently squeeze the bag. Pipe icing in a zigzag motion across each brownie. Squeeze 2 small circles of icing in the middle of each brownie, then place 1 chocolate chip in the middle of each circle. Repeat with remaining brownies
