Make an extra batch of these impossibly good layered bars--they won't last long. Chocaholics take note: you get the double-whammy of melted chocolate chips and chocolate cookies in these treats.

1/2
cup butter
1
bag (10 oz) mint-flavored semisweet chocolate chips (1 2/3 cups)
2
cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
1/4
cup butter, softened
1
tablespoon milk
1/2
teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1
drop green food color
2
cups powdered sugar
1/3
cup butter

Steps

  • 1 Lightly grease 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. In 2-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in cookie crumbs until well mixed; press evenly in pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 10 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small bowl, beat 1/4 cup butter, the milk, peppermint extract, vanilla and food color with electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. On low speed, gradually beat in powdered sugar until smooth.
  • 3 Spread peppermint mixture evenly over crumb mixture. In 1-quart saucepan, melt remaining chocolate chips and 1/3 cup butter over low heat, stirring constantly; spread evenly over peppermint mixture. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, 10 to 15 minutes. For bars, cut into 5 rows by 5 rows.

Expert Tips

To ease preparation, purchase prepared chocolate crumbs. Otherwise, use about 45 chocolate cookies; place them in a plastic bag and press with a rolling pin until they are finely crushed, or crush them in a food processor.
