No Bake Mint Chocolate Bars
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!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 16 bars
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cups powdered icing sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon mint extract
- green food coloring
- 2/3 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
- 2 tablespoons butter
BaseLine an 8x8" pan with tin foil.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, sugar and cocoa and microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir, and microwave on high another 20-30 seconds if necessary so that all is melted and combined.
Let cool 5 minutes and quickly whisk in egg (mixture will thicken as the egg is incoprorated). Stir in graham crumbs and coconut until combined. Press into prepared pan.
Filling:With an electric mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons milk and beat until smooth, adding a little more milk or sugar to reach desired consistency.
Add mint extract and green food coloring (as desired). Spread over base in pan.
Ganache:In a medium microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate and butter and melt in 20 second intervals on high, stirring each time, until smooth. Pour over filling in pan.
Refrigerate until completely set, at least 2-3 hours, before slicing and serving. Store in the refrigerator or freeze for up to a few months.
