Mint Chocolate Bars

If you love mint, you will love this recipe. It kind of reminds me of an Andes mint. I love that it is served cold - so yum! I truly cannot stop eating it!


Mint Chocolate Bars

Cake Layer

1/2 cup butter,softened
1 cup white sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups Hershey's syrup
1 cup all purpose flour

Heat oven to 350. Combine butter and sugar, add eggs then syrup; Add flour slowly to avoid lumps. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until center of cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely in pan.

Mint Cream Center

2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp mint extract (not peppermint)
3 drops green food coloring

Topping

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
