Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: 30 Minutes or Less

2 cups graham crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 cup cream
10 drops green food colouring
(or enough to make it bright green)
4 cups marshmallows
1 tbsp mint/peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup whipping cream
For the base: Combine crumbs, melted butter and sugar; press tightly into the bottom of a 9-inch by 13-inch pan.

For the filling: Heat 1/4 cup butter, cream and colouring together in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add flavourings and pour over the base, spreading it evenly. Set aside to cool.

For the topping: Heat whipping cream over medium-high heat. Add chocolate and remove from heat; let chocolate melt entirely. (Return it to the stove briefly if you need a little more heat for melting.) Chocolate mixture should not be hot, just warm enough to be melted. Spread melted chocolate over the green filling and chill for at least 4 hours before cutting.
Yield: 24 small bars
