Ingredients:  
Base: 1 pkg pudding included devils food cake mix
1/3 c. butter
1 egg

Filling: 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 c. boiling water

Directions:
Heat oven to 350. Grease 15x10x1 inch jelly roll pan. In a large bowl, combine all base ingredients at low speed until crumbly. Press in bottom of prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Cool completely.

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water; cool. In large bowl, combine dissolved gelatin and 2 cups of the powdered sugar. Add 1/2 c. butter, shortening, peppermint extract and food coloring; beat 1 minute at medium speed or until smooth and creamy. Blend in remaining 2 cups powdered sugar until smooth. Spread filling evenly over cooled base. {Don't let the gelatin set up. It only takes a couple of minutes for it to cool to the right consistancy. If you noticed rubbery pieces in the filling, it's because I let it cool too much. Sorry!}

In small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips and 3 Tbsps of butter, stirring constantly until well blended. Spoon frosting evenly over filling, carefully spreading to cover. Refrigerate until firm. cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.
