If you are a fan of the flavor combo of chocolate and mint, you’re going to love these fudgy treats! These decadent bars get their delightful mint flavor from the chocolate-covered mint candies that melt into the batter as it cooks. Replacing regular butter with apple butter and using melted chocolate in the batter keeps them moist making them even more irresistible. For the best results, be sure to let them cool before cutting them into squares. If you’d like to transport them to a potluck or picnic, stack them in a covered container layered between sheets of parchment paper.
