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

I always asked my parents for Vienetta too. And I practically remember the commercials as if I saw them yesterday! I have no clue if they still make it, or who ever did to begin with. Lucerne?

I do remember Vienetta. Do they still make that? I saw commercials for it years ago and always wished my mom would buy it.

These can be made even easier with a brownie mix as the bottom and then the mint and chocolate layers. My mom has been making these since I was little. I love them!
