    These didn't go over well at our party. Nobody seemed to like the second layer, which is a personal thing, not a flaw with the recipe. The third layer gave me fits. Every time I added butter to the chocolate, it seized up like cement. Like when water gets into chocolate when melting. After the third try, I decided to melt 3 squares of almond bark (no butter added) and spread that over the second layer. I really like the first layer, that could be used in different recipes, a pie crust comes to mind.

    This is an awesome recipe that actually comes from "Company's Coming 150 Delicious Squares" book. It is a rich & decadent mint version of Nanaimo bars. I've been making this for several years. This year, I entered it in the County Fair unbaked squares category & won first place!!

    I started to submit this recipe and saw someone else beat me to it! Aren't these absolutely wonderful? They are a must-try for anyone who loves chocolate mint.

    Very rich and creamy flavor. They were more of a minty bar cookie than a "mint" I made a batch up to serve at a reception and they were the first thing to dissapear. Would definitely make them again.
