Great one for St. Patrick's Day! I got this recipe many years ago at a Christmas Cookie Exchange party. And it has been a favorite every since (along with a couple modifications from me!).

  2. Icing: Combine confectioners' sugar, 3/4 cup butter, peppermint extract, food coloring, and 3 tablespoons milk. Beat until fluffy and spread onto cooled chocolate cake.
  3. Melt in double boiler chocolate chips and 3 tablespoons butter. Drizzle over icing and spread to make chocolate layer solid. Refrigerate to set chocolate.
  4. To cut into bars, warm up a knife to avoid chocolate from splitting.
