These yummy mint chocolate bites created by our Test Kitchen are so delightful, you’ll find it difficult to stop at one. With a combination of sweetness and crunch from the chocolate cookies, they make pretty holiday gifts with candy canes or other candies on top.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 11, 2013

These are super yummy...but I had to improvise. You can't get Andes candies in Canada, so I used peppermint oil in regular (well, it was still good quality) chocolate. Except that I found them in the Christmas candy aisle for the first time. But now you can't get green cream in the cream filled cookies; but you can them in pink cream from a different brand. It's all good...

these are great! I use Andes baking bits instead of the full mints.
