Chocolate Mint Nanaimo Bars

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by LuckyMomof3

An old favorite my mom used to make then passed the wooden spoon unto me. These are sooo tasty, just the right combination of mint and chocolate, they melt in your mouth. I have to make three batches at Christmas to cover demand! Plus they look so festive cause they're green. I usually platter them with Cherry Almond Nanaimo Bars because they're pinkish red, for Christmas Note: Time includes setting times.
