Chocolate peppermint lovers will be coming back for more when they get a taste of this delicious bar recipe.
When I saw that Chipits had new mint chocolate chips in the grocery store right in time for Christmas baking, I quickly scooped up a bag. (You will need two for the recipe).
I had Chocolate Peppermint Brownies in mind, but couldn't resist the recipe on the back of the package for these delicious Chocolate Mint Nanaimo bars.
They are so simple to make and have basic ingredients.
For Base: Melt 1 cup of Chips Mint Chocolate Chips with ½ cup butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
Stir in graham crumbs, coconut and walnuts. Stir well to combine, then spread evenly and press into bottom of an 8x8-inch baking dish.
Chill for 30 minutes.
For middle layer: Combine powdered sugar with ⅓ cup butter, milk, custard powder, peppermint extract and a few drops of green food colouring.
Spread evenly over chocolate base. Return to refrigerator while you are preparing the glaze.
For Glaze: Melt remaining ¾ cup of Mint Chocolate Chips with vegetable oil in a bowl set over a pot with simmering water, or melt over low heat in microwave.
Spread evenly over filling.
Chill until completely set. Cut into bars and enjoy!Print
