Mint + Chocolate = Divine Dessert


Yesterday, on TeamSugar's food and entertaining channel, reader krys786 sent out a cry for help by asking for a tried and true choco-mint dessert. Apparently that combination is her boyfriend's fave and like a good girlfriend, she wants to make him a sweet treat. Always one to please, I thought I'd help a girl out by providing my favorite chocolate mint layer bars recipe. It's simple and easy to make consisting of a chocolate cake layer topped with a green mint glazed layer and a chocolate glaze layer. Think jazzed up minty brownies, think mouth watering, think absolutely to die for. Think you want the recipe? Well please read more
