Midnight mints

Here is another of our annual squares. It is from a 1991 Company's Coming cookbook. It has a great minty taste.

Butter 1/2 c
Sugar 1/4 c
Cocoa 5 tbsp
Egg Beaten 1
Graham crumbs 1 3/4 c
Chopped walnuts 1/2 c
Fine coconut 3/4 c (unsweetened)

Butter 1/3 c
Milk 3 tbsp
Peppermint extract 1 tsp or about 6 drops of peppermint oil
Icing sugar 2 cups
Green Food coloring

Semisweet choco chips 2/3 c
Butter 2 tbsp

Bottom layer: Combine first amount of butter first amount of sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil slowly. Stir in egg to thicken. Remove from heat.

Stir in crumbs nuts and coconut. Pack firmly into greased 9x9 pan.

Second Layer: Combine second amount of butter, milk, flavoring and icing sugar in bowl. Beat together well. Tint green. Spread over first layer.

Third layer: Melt chips and third amount of butter. Spread over second layer. Chill and store in the fridge. This will keep well and also freezes well.



Life is too short for bad BBQ
