Frosted Mint Bars


When I was in 5th Grade, our class all brought in our favorite recipes and made a cookbook for a fundraiser.  Ths is one of the recipes I always liked from the book.  I think they are perfect for this time of year with the green frosting and mint flavor.

When my mom gave me this book a while back it was fun looking though all the recipes, but was most entertaining was the pictures we all drew with them.   I'll post a picture from one of my recipes next time... it is a real winner.
