These incredible melt-in-your-mouth candies have the perfect amount of mint nestled between layers of mild chocolate. Even when I make a double batch for everyone to enjoy, the supply never lasts long at Christmas!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2012

I have been making this candy for many years. It is always a favorite. I have varied the flavoring by using cherry, almond and orange - color accordingly.

Reviewed Dec. 11, 2010

great recipe - I'd moved and couldn't find my copy & was really stressing till a friend sent me this link. I'd promised to make it for friends. This time it goes in my recipe box.Also good made with cherry instead of mint in the middle. Makes a very pretty display, not to mention very yummy.

This candy is delicious however, it is very thin and not as thick as the picture shows.

It is also not easy to cut as it breaks apart as you are cutting it.
