A tempting homemade treat that's wonderful to share. Whether enjoyed over coffee or tea with a friend, a dinner party dessert or as a gift, the mint and chocolate flavor combination will excite every palate.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray 9x13-in. baking pan with vegetable pan spray. Spread cookie crumbs evenly onto bottom of pan, pressing firmly into place. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven; cool completely
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add eggs; mix well. Add milk; blend on low speed. Add flavoring and desired amount of icing color; blend well. Pour over cookie crust; bake 30-35 minutes or until filling is firm and slightly brown at the edges. Remove from oven; cool completely in pan on wire rack.
Meanwhile, prepare ganache topping. In large saucepan, heat whipping cream just to boiling. (Do not boil). Remove from heat; add chopped candy and stir until melted and smooth. Gently pour ganache over bars; carefully spread to cover evenly. Refrigerate bars until ready to serve. Cut into bars.

The recipe has an error in it regarding the division of salt, I think the 1/4 teaspoon is supposed to go in the crust. Also I bake the crust cooled it then put the mint layer on and baked it. The mint layer absorbed into the crust , so there is hardly any green showing. I am guessing maybe it should be cooked at a lower temp? If this is the case you need someone to proof read your recipes a little better. Won't be trying this particular recipe again. I am very disappointed .
