I love dessert. Love, love, love! Hershey’s Double Chocolate Mint Dessert is one of my absolute favorites. Besides being delicious, the mint in this bar is really refreshing too. I didn’t want to keep this recipe to myself and am hoping you enjoy it as much as I do!

Hershey’s Double Chocolate Mint Dessert

1          cup flour

1          cup sugar

1/2      cup butter, softened

4          eggs

1          16 ounce can Hershey’s Syrup

2          cups powdered sugar

1/2      cup butter, softened

1          tablespoon water

1/2      teaspoon mint extract

3          drops green food color (optional)

6          tablespoons butter

1          cup mint chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and syrup until smooth.  Pour into greased 9” x 13” pan; bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched (top may still appear wet).

Simple Tips:

*Make sure you leave enough time between steps. Things have to cool, chill, etc. and if you don’t plan ahead, you may have difficulties completing these on time.

*When you first bake the bars, they will pull away from the edge of the pan. This is normal and okay, so don’t panic like I did the first time I made them! 🙂 When you add the mint and chocolate on top, it will all even out and look great.

*Be careful when melting the chocolate. If this gets overdone, it won’t have the smooth finish you are looking for!

*These bars do tend to crumble when you cut them to serve. I say, who cares? They taste so good, no one will even notice!
