Today I have another mint chocolate recipe for you. This recipe came about because I decided I wanted to make grasshopper pie bars. Then I thought that if I freeze them it would be like eating mint chocolate chip ice cream. Before I became lactose intolerant, I used to eat a bowl of ice cream every night. I loved ice cream and mint chocolate chip was one of my favorite types. Now I can’t have ice cream and I haven’t seen any dairy free ice cream in mint chocolate chip flavor.
Because I can still have some dairy products, just not milk, ice cream, or yogurt, I decided to make the mint chocolate chip bars using dairy products that I could eat. That way it would be like eating mint chocolate chip ice cream, but without the actual ice cream part. Because these were going to be pie bars, I decided to add an Oreo crust.
These Mint Chocolate Frozen Pie Bars are so good. They tasted like mint chocolate ice cream with an added Oreo crust. In my opinion that makes it even better! Instead of using chocolate chips I used chopped Andes Mints to give it more of a minty flavor and so I did not have to use as much extract. I added a couple of drops of green food coloring to give the bars their green color, but you could skip that. I really loved these pie bars and thought they tasted great with the Oreo crust on every bite. Everyone in my family loved these bars. These are a great treat for warm days or for anytime. I hope that you enjoy them!
