Dark Chocolate Peppermint Mud Hen Bars Recipe for the Christmas Holidays

So what does a Mud Hen Bar taste like?  It’s like taking a gooey-yummy roasted marshmallow and puting it between two soft and chewy, chocolate chip cookies.  Now imagine for a moment, taking dark chocolate Dove peppermint candies and using them instead of chocolate chips…HEAVEN!

These bars are a great dessert to add to your holiday cookie platter.  They are easier to make than your traditional chocolate chip cookie because you cook them in a casserole dish and cut them in to bars–you get to avoid all that scooping and baking in individual batches.

I took these over to a friends house last night, and they requested the recipe, so I decided I would do it as a post.  Hope you enjoy my version of Mud Hen Bars this Holiday Season!
