There are a few times each year that I absolutely crave mint and chocolate. The first is during spring time. St Patrick's Day is the perfect time to quench this craving! I like to whip up a batch of this simple treat and share it with friends for the Irish celebration.

Granted this is a very American version of a St Patty's Day gift, but I am American. So it works. ;) Another time that I really love chocolate and mint is during Christmas.

For Christmas I whip up several batches and pack them up in clear treat bags. Tie them with a pretty ribbon and attach the recipe. It makes a really fun gift and the recipients are always very grateful.

It is so easy, you are going to melt the candy confections, stir in mint and green food coloring and pour into a pan. Swirl to create a beautiful candy bark and sprinkle with Oreos and Andes mint. Chill it in the refrigerator or freezer for 20 minutes and then break apart.

I use a butter knife or just rap the pan on the counter. Seriously, what could be easier? You are going to be loving this all year round and as a gift, can you just imagine bringing those little gift bags to work or school?



Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
