Grasshopper Squares

This retro-inspired no-bake dessert is perfect for when you want a chocolate and minty treat without spending a ton of time in the kitchen.

Note: for those at home the chocolate frosting on the top, which hardens in the refrigerator, does make it challenging to cut perfect uniform pieces without breaking/squishing--not sure how Kraft got such perfect looking specimens in the photos on their site, but I suspect a team of talented stylists were behind it. If desserts that have the tendency to get messy set you on edge (I have Type-A tendencies, I understand), beware. This is delicious, but perhaps not photo-perfect.
