Thin Mint Cookie Bars

Thin Mint Cookie Bars
 My all time favorite Girl Scout cookie is the Thin Mint.  I could seriously eat a whole sleeve in one sitting and being 32 weeks pregnant, make that the whole box.  So when I saw on a {blog} I follow that there was a recipe link up, I used that as the perfect excuse to create a Thin Mint dessert.
 Warning: The cookie bars I made are super rich and all chocolate.  
Your stomach will hurt if you eat too many.
Ingredients
20 mint Oreos
6 TB melted butter
1.5 sleeves Thin Mints, chopped
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
(I mixed green food coloring with the milk but after it baked, you couldn't really see the green.)

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350.  Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with cooking spray.
2. Place the Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they are fine crumbs.
3. In a bowl, stir the Oreos crumbs and melted butter.
4. Press the mixture on the bottom of the baking dish.
5. Layer the chocolate chips over the Oreo layer.
6. Add the chopped thin mints over the chocolate chips.
7. Evenly pour the sweetened condense milk over the cookies.
8. Bake 30-40 minutes (depending on your oven) until edges are golden and bubbly.

The finished product.  It's probably best to cool completely and eat as a single bar.
OR you could just get a spoon and start eating the gooey mess.  
Not that I did that or anything.

While I was on a St. Patty's Day kick, Solis and I made the cutest little art project:

Happy March!! :)
