MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 18, 2014

I made this for a St Patrick's day treat and was so pleased with how it turned out. I did the bottom layer of chocolate, then the mint layer. I used the extra chocolate for the top layer to pipe shamrocks on top of the green. They looked and tasted amazing. I did 2 tsp. mint extract and thought the peppermint was perfect in strength. This is such a fun, easy, tasty recipe, I will be making it often!

Lucy4evfan--the white candy coating is like almond bark. It comes in white chocolate or milk chocolate and is available in the baking aisle of most grocery stores. It is what you can use for dip strawberries or pretzels in as well. It thickens a little more than melted chocolate chips do.
