These No Bake Mint Chocolate Bars are one of my ALL-TIME favorites! Made up of a no bake graham cracker crust and topped with a creamy mint frosting and chocolate ganache!

I want to see hands from all my mint chocolate lovers! Where are you?

The husband and I love the mint chocolate combo. We disagree on our share of things, but generally dessert is not one of those things. Unless it’s pumpkin — then he’s all in and I’m on the edge somewhere.

But mint and chocolate? There’s never been any question.

When I told him that these No Bake Mint Chocolate Bars were coming up on the blog (which would mean a batch or two to photograph and, obviously, taste test) he was pretty excited.

I would have to say that these bars are one of our all-time favorite bars. The recipe is one I’ve had in my folder of recipes (yes — it is originally written on paper!) for years and years. And years. But I haven’t made it very often lately because, well — there are so many new things to try!

I would probably even say that these bars don’t happen once a year for us. They should, believe me, and you can bet that they will now! But I think we kind of forgot about them.

I don’t think that’s going to happen again anytime soon!

I tried making the base without the egg, because I feel like there are people out there who will be all like, “a raw egg?!? Grrrrrossssss!” But it’s not raw, the egg cooks in the hot cocoa mixture and it binds everything so well that it can’t be left out.

The filling is a perfectly cool and creamy mint buttercream frosting, and the chocolate ganache, well, it’s more chocolate and I think that’s saying enough.

Enjoy!

    What kind of chocolate do you use for topping? I would like to find a way to have the chocolate topping not crack when you cut it after its set.

    • Ashley Fehr says

      You can really use any chocolate but I always use semisweet. If you want the chocolate topping not to crack, you may want to add a tiny bit more butter or a tiny bit of cream. It will make the top softer but you don’t want it too soft. I also recommend popping them into the freezer for a couple hours before slicing for nice clean slices.

    Hi Ashley! I have a real weakness for coconut, so I love that you put in the base! If i make all the wonderful holiday treats I’ve seen lately I will be “rolling” instead of ringing in the New Year!
