Chocolate Peppermint Bars

Found these goodies in our church cookbook... Isn't that just a wonderful place to find hidden goodness? These were super chocolatey and I love the mint hidden in the middle! My only complaint for this recipe was that I didn't have enough peppermint extract to double the batch!!

Chocolate Peppermint Bars
(recipe found in Our Saviour's Lutheran Cookbook, Janelle Brockpahler)

Layer #1
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 dup sugar
1/2 cup flour

Layer #2
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2-3 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Layer #3
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons butter

Melt chocolate and butter. Cream eggs and sugar. Add flour and chocolate mixture. Mix well. Bake in an 8x8 inch pan at 350 for 20 minutes. Cream sugar and butter. Blend in cream and peppermint. Spread on COOLED first layer. Refrigerate until chilled. Melt chocolate and butter together and pour over peppermint layer. Chill. Cut into small squares.

You can double this recipe for a 9x13 inch pan and bake longer. Mint cream layer can be tinted red or green for Christmas!
