1 cup (250 ml) cocoa
1/2 tsp (2 ml) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Coat baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Beat shortening, sugar and eggs in large mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips.

Pour half the batter into greased baking pan, spreading evenly with spatula or butter knife. Individually unwrap AFTER EIGHT mints and layer side by side evenly over top surface of batter. Using a spatula or butter knife, carefully spread the remaining batter on top of the mint layer, covering completely.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in centre comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely on wire rack; cut into squares.
