You'll love these if you're a big fan of the thin chocolate mint Girl Scout cookies. The dense base layer is like a rich, fudgy brownie, so don't overcook it or the dessert bars will be dry. Refrigerating the mint bars allows the chocolaty top layer to set properly. You can make the dessert up to one day ahead. For a more grown-up taste, you can also use dark chocolate chips for some or all of the semisweet chocolate chips in the glaze.
Have you guys gotten into juicing yet? If you haven’t, you should try it! It’s a fun and tasty way to pack a ton of healthy nutrients into a drinkable treat that’ll make you feel great.
Now, a lot of folks out there think of juicing as a replacement for whole foods—I don’t agree with that. I believe that whole foods (and the fiber that comes along with them) are vital part of a healthy diet. I don’t recommend using fruit or vegetable juices as a replacement for food.
