March has hit and girl scout cookies are everywhere! This Mint Bark really hits the spot and you will be able to enjoy thin mint style cookies all year long.
I will say it over and over, I’m not the fun mom that goes all out for holidays. I don’t do super fun things for my kids. I feel bad about it sometimes. Some holidays are just dumb to me. St. Patrick’s Day is one of those. I do wear green and I do make something green for dinner. We usually do Pesto and we have some great recipes for pesto and even making it fun for St. Patrick’s Day. We’ve got some healthy ideas too on making fun rainbow foods with fruit and vegetables. We haven’t done a treat though so here I am sharing a St. Patrick’s Day treat. Although it’s really not just for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s just too good to make it only one time a year.
You guys, the cookie part is just Chocolate Graham Crackers. That’s it. No work at all.
I was seriously super surprised at how good these things taste.
12 ounces Mint Candy Melts or 12 ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips with ½ tsp. Peppermint Extract
10 Chocolate Graham Crackers
4 Green Candy Melts or White Chocolate Chips with 1 drop green food coloring
1-Make sure you have all your ingredients and clean your work area.
2-Lay out a piece of parchment paper on a sheet pan.
3-Pour your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and put the chocolate in it. Heat it for 30 seconds at a time until it’s all melted. Add the mint extract if needed.
4-Pour half of the chocolate down on a sheet pan. Spread it around guessing how big you need to make it. We did 2 sets of 5 chocolate graham crackers.
5-Place the Chocolate Graham Crackers on the chocolate.
6-Pour the other half of the chocolate on top of the graham crackers and spread the chocolate around carefully to cover all of the graham crackers.
10-Let the chocolate set. You can speed it up by putting it in the fridge.
11-Once it had cooled you can melt your green candy melts. If you used white chocolate then add your green food coloring once it has melted.
12-Make sure it’s not too hot and dip your finger tips in the chocolate and shake the chocolate off over the chocolate.
13-Let the green chocolate set up. You can put it in the fridge to speed up the process.
14-Once it has set, break it up into pieces. The more random the better.
15-Clean up the mess.
16-Eat, Share, Enjoy!!!
