12
round starlight mints
1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3/4
cup white vanilla baking chips
2
teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 15x10-inch pan with sides with cooking spray. In resealable food-storage plastic bag, place mints. With rolling pin or flat side of meat mallet, coarsely crush mints. Pour crushed mints into fine strainer; shake lightly so tiny pieces fall into large bowl (reserve larger pieces of mints for garnish).
  • 2 In large bowl with tiny mint pieces, stir cookie mix, butter, egg and flour until stiff dough forms. Press into pan. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan, about 30 minutes.
  • 3 In small microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips and oil on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  • 4 With fork, drizzle half of melted chips over cooled bars. Sprinkle with reserved crushed mints. Drizzle with remaining melted chips. Let stand until set, about 10 minutes. Break into irregular 2- to 3-inch pieces. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

Try crushed candy canes or cherry hard candies in place of starlight mints.

To soften butter, microwave unwrapped butter in glass bowl or measuring cup uncovered on High (100%) for 10 to 15 seconds.
