Chocolate Mint Bars
An easy, creamy chocolate mint bar with a chocolate cookie crust, creamy buttery filling, and cool chocolate top. Delicious!
Servings 16 servings
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- green food coloring (optional)
- 18 oreos (this doesn't need to be exact. You just need enough to cover the bottom of your pan when they're crushed)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Crush the oreos. We did this by putting them in a food processor, but you could also put them in a ziplock bag and hit them with a rolling pin.
Mix the butter, oreos, and peppermint extract. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 8x8 pan.
Mix the butter and cream together. Slowly add the powdered sugar (if you add it too quickly it will get everywhere!). Mix until fully combined. Add the peppermint extract and green food coloring until desired color.
Use about half of the frosting to make a “crumb coat”. Spread the frosting over the oreos. The oreos will likely mix into the frosting, but that’s fine. Chill for 10-15 minutes. Spread the rest of the frosting. Chill again.
Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Spread over frosting.
Chill until chocolate has hardened.
