    winkki's Note:

    Chocolate and peppermint -- a classic combination! The smooth chocolate top layer hides two more yummy layers underneath: a chocolate crust and creamy peppermint filling. You can also tint the mint layer green (or red, I suppose, for Christmas, though I think green is prettier and 'mintier.' Originally from the Colorado Cache cookbook, these bars are great for the holidays or anytime. Prep time does not include assorted chilling periods.

      I love these! I remember having them as a kid. To cut down on the richness (if desired) halve the chocolate topping layer ingredients.
