Chocolate Mint Sugar Cookie Bars

Chocolate Mint Sugar Cookie Bars

A sweet treat for a sweet friend, the recipe comes from “Inside Bru Crew Life”.  I had a little sample when I cut them up this morning and they are awesome, the cookie layer was just the tiniest bit dry so maybe a little more liquid added to the dough would help that, otherwise delic!

cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

(1 – 2 tablespoons milk if needed)

mint frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon mint extract

6 tablespoons whipping cream

1/4 teaspoon salt

green gel food coloring

1 cup Andes mint pieces

1  For cookies, beat butter and sugars together until smooth then add egg and vanilla and beat again until smooth.

2  Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt then slowly add to butter mixture until mixed in well.  (Add milk a tablespoon at a time if dough is too crumbly to stick together.)  Press mixture into greased 9 x 13″ pan.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.  Let cool completely.

3  For frosting, beat butter, mint extract and whipping cream until creamy.  Slowly add in salt and powdered sugar and beat until smooth.

4  Add green food coloring until desired shade is achieved.  Beat until color is even.  Spread over cooled bars and top with mint pieces.
