Midnight Mints

Post by Diva Q » Mon Dec 18, 2006 12:44 pm

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

Midnight mints

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.

I always thought midnight mints were those candies in the urinals but yours look much better. :lol: :lol: :lol:
