Bottom Layer:
1 cup all-purpose flour, lightly spooned into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup egg substitute
¼ cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs, beaten
1 (16-oz.) can Hershey’s chocolate syrup

Mint Layer:
2 cups powdered sugar
