Creme De Menthe Bars

I am a creature of habit, I like a schedule, something about it gives me comfort. So never fail, almost everyday I call my mom at 9am to catch up and see what her plans are for the day. One morning before the Christmas holiday, mom was telling me about a Christmas party she went to with her teacher buddies. One of her friends,Cindy, brought these Creme de Menthe bars that mom kept going on and on about. Mom’s friend said her family makes them every year for Christmas. So naturally I begged my mom to get the recipe for me to try.

I ended up making these bars over the holidays and mom was right, they are AWESOME! I love the graham crackers mixed with cocoa powder and butter, um yum! These bars have just the right amount of mint flavor. Since St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, I thought this would be a great time to break out this recipe again and make some for our neighbors.
