Mint Chocolate Cookie Bark

Warning:  this is highly addictive.  This is popular with people that don’t like chocolate, this is popular with people that don’t like mint!  This is great for a salty, sweet, minty, crunchy treat!  There’s a little bit of everything in here and the possibilities are endless.  While this isn’t really “cooking” it’s a great assembly dessert which makes it perfect for when you’re short on time or have a lot of candy around that you want to use.

Mint Chocolate Cookie BarkMint Chocolate Cookie Bark piece

Makes about 2 full cookie sheets

Adapted from Your Homebased Mom

  • 3 (12oz) bags milk chocolate chips (or your preferred chocolate)
  • 1 package grasshopper cookies (or Thin Mints), crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
  • 1/2 package dark chocolate M&Ms (mini would probably stick better)

Melt milk chocolate over medium heat.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, then drizzle melted chocolate over the parchment paper.  Spread chocolate out in a thin layer, then top with crushed cookies, pretzels and M&Ms.  Let the chocolate harden, I recommend sticking it in the freezer for about 15 minutes.  When chocolate has hardened, break into pieces and serve, or keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

  1. Very addictive is a bit of an understatement!…Had to put them out in the garage, in the freezer under the frozen vegetables to stop eating/ nibbling and let’s be honest snarfing these! YUM!.

  2. yum! I have never thought of this. I might use candy melts so that the chocolate stays set better. I will try this very soon!
