No-Bake Chocolate Mint Bars

No-Bake Chocolate Mint BarsToday, i’m participating in a fun blogger event — 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!
