No-Bake Chocolate Mint Bars

by Amy on 25 August 2013

No-Bake Chocolate Mint BarsToday, iā€™m participating in a fun blogger event ā€” the Secret Recipe Club. How does it work? Every blogger is secretly assigned another blog + chooses a recipe from that blog to make. On reveal day (today!), all of our posts go up at the same time, + everyone gets to see who was assigned to their blog, which recipe they chose, + how it turned out. Fun, huh?

I was assigned Lavender and Lovage, a gorgeously-photographed blog full of amazing recipes. After looking through a bunch of recipes, I decided on No-Bake Chocolate Mint Bars. I love the combo of chocolate + mint (as evidenced by my Peppermint Patty Brownie Cupcakes, Andes Mint Chip Cookies, + Mint Chocolate Chip Cocktail) + with the hot weather we’re having here, the no-bake factor was a big bonus. Y’all, these bars are flippin’ delicious. They’ve got a crisp chocolate cookie base topped with a creamy mint layer, then a rich, chocolate ganache-like layer. They taste just like Thin Mints, so if you love those Girl Scout Cookies as much I do, you’ve got to make these! They were SO easy to make, taking a mere 15 minutes to put together. Delicious AND simple? Win!

Thank you to Karen for introducing me to these fabulous Chocolate Mint Bars + to the Secret Recipe Club for connecting me, yet again, with fantastic bloggers + amazing recipes!

This is my favorite flavor, the chocolate mixture in the mint tastes cold in the mouth.

I hardly leave remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here . And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or does it look like some of the responses come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors? šŸ˜› And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you list of every one of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
