This recipe is actually an oldie from the last time I did 3 Weeks of Girl Scouts (in 2012) that I’ve decided deserves a makeover and a new chance at the spotlight.
These bars were my very, very, very, very, very favorite recipe I posted from that GS Cookie series. I mean, they are just knock your socks off delicious. And when I posted them (the first time), I just knew people would go nuts over them. Like, really, really nuts. Because they are just that good.
So I posted them and waited for the applause that I knew would bring down the house.
And I waited.
And waited some more.
And all I ever heard was crickets. Nobody ever noticed this recipe!!!!
Which is really just a crying shame, because they are simply divine. The sweetened condensed milk tones down the mint a little bit, so that it’s not overwhelming. The cookies absorb the sweet stickiness perfectly, creating the signature chewy texture we’ve all come to love in a magic cookie bar. And the layer of white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate create a nearly fudge-like layer in the middle of everything, putting these bars right over the edge.
I thought this was one recipe that definitely deserved a second chance to be noticed!! So pin it, print it, send it to your email– whatever you’ve gotta do to hang on to this one. It’s a keeper!
