DARK CHOCOLATE MINT BITES
This one I found online. (I’ll put link below)
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup dark or semisweet chocolate pieces
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup finely crushed chocolate wafers (about 19 wafers), or bear-shape chocolate graham snack cookies (1 1/2 cups)
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon shortening
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened (1/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Snipped fresh mint (optional)
Lightly coat an 8x8x2-inch baking pan with cooking spray.* Set aside.
For crust, place oats in a food processor; cover and pulse with several on/off turns until finely ground. In a medium saucepan combine 1/4 cup of the chocolate pieces and the butter; heat and stir over low heat until melted. Stir in oats, crushed wafers, cocoa powder, milk, and salt. Press crust mixture into prepared pan. Chill for 15 minutes.
In the same saucepan combine the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate pieces and the shortening. Heat and stir over low heat until melted. Set aside.
In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, and peppermint extract; stir until smooth. Spread evenly over crust. Drizzle with the melted chocolate mixture.
Chill about 1 hour or until chocolate drizzle is set (cream cheese layer will remain soft). If desired, sprinkle with fresh mint. Cut into 24 bars.
Sooo good! I had to stop myself from eating the whole tray of em! Yummm
