Eat at Bett's

Our Passion for Food came from our Mom

Mint Squares

I found these bars on a bloggy friend’s website. Kim over at My Journey, posted this recipe during the Christmas season. They are very minty (is that even a word?) and chocolaty and made a big splash over the holidays. I took them to my in-laws as well as down south when we visited family and had several requests for the recipe. Because I didn’t want to lose the recipe, I decided to post it now even though it is not the holidays. If you love mint and chocolate together, you will love these. The only thing was that green food coloring made them look a tad bit unnatural, so it is up to you if you want to use it. (Sorry my camera is broken so I found a picture of a mint plant on-line) ; )

Mint Squares

(For the Cookie)
4 eggs
2 C sugar
1 C cocoa powder
1 C flour
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla
2 sticks butter, melted

(For the Frosting)
2 3/4 C confectioner’s sugar
1 stick melted butter
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
3-5 drops green food coloring (optional)
milk (adjust as needed)

(For Glaze)
2 (1 oz) squares unsweetened chocolate
2 TBSP butter

(For Cookie Base)
Beat eggs & sugar until thick. Add remaining ingredients in order. Spread in greased (11 x 17) jelly roll pan. Bake at 350* for 15 minutes. (***In my oven the cookie baked much faster.)

(For the Frosting)
Mix all ingredients. Frost cookie (which does not need to be completely cool).

(For Glaze)
Melt chocolate and butter together. Pour on frosted cookie. Cool in refrigerator for 10 minutes before cutting.
