Fudge Mint Bars Gluten-Dairy-Egg-Free


The fudge mint bars are a huge thing in our house every 4th of July! As a kid I grew up eating this – little did I know I was allergic to eggs, dairy, and gluten! I sure did love these. My mom would make them and take them to an annual 4th of July Party we went to every year – food, pool, trivial pursuit, and fireworks – what more could you want?!

Here is a version of these Fudge Mint Bars that are gluten-free. You can make them with duck eggs, and they will turn out so yummy! You can also use egg substitute for this recipe as well. Use plant-based butter for you butter substitute.  For chocolate I use Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup in the can for this recipe. Just make sure you are NOT using milk chocolate because it will have milk in it.
