Trust me. These are worth making those 3 layers.
And with a cute little helper like this... (I told him to look serious).
I'd say you have to eat at least 2.
Grasshopper Bars (found in this cookbook)
4 squares (4 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup butter softened
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Combine chocolate, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour and pecans. Spread in 9x13 greased pan and bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until center is set. Cool brownies.
4 tablespoons butter softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp peppermint flavoring
4 drops green food coloring
2 tablespoons milk
Beat all the ingredients together, adding milk to make the mixture spreadable. Spread on cooled brownie layer. Put in refrigerator to set for one hour.
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
Melt on low in a saucepan. Spread over cooled mint layer and let stand for one hour. Makes 36 bars. I just keep mine in the refrigerator because I think they are yummy this way, but whatever suits your fancy.
If any of this is confusing, let me know in the comments and I will clarify. I am typing as Nathan is on top of his high chair tray waiting for me to get him. Gotta run.
