Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 1 cup of mint chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of butter in the top of a double boiler over hot water, stirring to melt the chips and butter together into a smooth mixture. Remove from heat, and beat in 1/4 cup of confectioners' sugar and egg; beat well. Stir in graham cracker crumbs until well combined, and press the mixture into an 8x8-inch dish. Chill the crust in refrigerator for about 1 hour.

  • In a mixing bowl, beat 1/4 cup of butter, 2 cups of confectioners' sugar, and milk with an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth and fluffy. Beat in green food coloring, 1 drop at a time, until filling reaches the desired color. Spread the filling over the chilled crust, and return to refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  • Melt 1 cup of mint chocolate chips with 1/4 cup of butter in the top of a double boiler over hot water, stirring until the mixture is warm (not hot), smooth, and spreadable. Spread the topping in an even layer over the filling, and return the dish to the refrigerator. Chill until the topping is firm but not hard, about 15 minutes, cut into squares, and return to refrigerator for about 15 more minutes. Serve cold.

I love this recipe! I could not find mint chocolate chips so I substituted with Lindt dark chocolate mint bars mixed with some Aero mint bars. (Same measurement). Yes they are hard to cut once completely chilled, so my foil pan ended up with little holes in the bottom but this had no effect on the awesome taste and richness of these bars. Great dessert if it’s too hot to bake. I will be making these for future gatherings for sure. Read More

My son loves Minty Nanaimo Bars I chose this recipe because it did not have coconut or nuts in the base which Nanaimo Bars traditionally have but we don't like them that way! I used green paste colouring for the liquid reduced the butter in the topping to 2 tbsps from 1/4 cup and topped up the cup of chips for the topping with semi sweet as I did not have enough. I do not refrigerate the bars after I add the topping as I find them too hard to cut I put them in a Tupperware container overnight then cut for nicer edges. #Allrecipesallstarscanada #Christmasbaking #FacelessNoMore Read More
