No Bake Mint Chocolate Brownies

Hey!!  Oh my goodness it is super hot here!  I can’t stand the heat, give me the winter and cozy quilts over sweltering heat any day.  Last week it was just unbearably hot and the ac went out, of course.  So the thought of turning on the the oven was just unfathomable.  So quick and light dinners it was but I still was craving something sweet and chocolaty.  I remembered seeing these No Bake Mint Chocolate Bars recipe from Betty Crocker and off I went to make them.

These took minutes to make and I melted my chocolate in the microwave instead of turning on the stove so these were perfect for my super hot day.

The bottom layer is a crunchy cookie layer, made with Oreos and melted mint chocolate chip pieces (I used Andes mint chips).

 The second layer is a creamy, dreamy mint layer.

 Then finally the top is a chocolate topping made with the rest of the mint chips and melted butter, making a smooth chocolate shell.

 These bars are heaven on a hot day.  They are cool, and refreshing with all that mint flavor and they were the perfect thing to cool me off and satisfy my chocolate craving.

Put away your oven mitts for this one ladies and make these No Bake Mint Chocolate Bars today!
