Chocolate Mint Sandwiches

St. Patrick’s Day is this Saturday! Can you believe it? March is flying by! We’re going to kick off this fun week of St. Patrick’s Day treats with a recipe for Chocolate Mint Sandwiches from Frieda Loves Bread.

Chocolate Mint Sandwiches:

Ingredients:
2 heaping cups of either milk or dark chocolate Guittard A’Peels
1 heaping cup of Guittard Green Mint A’Peels
(1 heaping cup = approx. 60 chocolate discs)

Equipment Needed:
Microwave safe bowls
Quarter size bun pan
Quarter size parchment paper
Offset spatula
Sharp, thin knife

Step 1:

Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2:

Pour Guittard A’Peels into 3 separate bowls. One heaping cup of chocolate in each bowl.

Step 3:

Melt one bowl of chocolate at a time in the microwave using the 20 second rule starting with the milk or dark chocolate.

Step 4:

When the chocolate has melted, pour it onto the center of the parchment paper. Using an offset spatula, spread into a 10″ x 7″ rectangle that is approx. 1/8″ thick. Wait 1-2 minutes until the layer has a matte finish. When it does, then pour melted green mint chocolate over it.

*NOTE: While waiting for the chocolate spread to have a matte finish, melt the next bowl of chocolate.

Step 5:

Repeat with the next 2 bowls of chocolate. Use mint next, and then the last of the milk or dark chocolate.

Step 6:

Wait 15-20 minutes for the chocolate to set and then cut into 1″ squares using your knife.

Store in an airtight container in a cool area. Makes approximately 70 1″ squares.

Don’t they look delicious?!
