This is a great recipe. My family absolutely loves it. I tried it last year, marked it "Best" of the three kinds I made. Made a batch last weekend, my husband and 2 kids have it gone 4 days later.I made one substitution this year do to our small town not having "Mint Chips". I used a food scale, 4 ounces of andes mints and 6 ounces of regular chocolate chips. The family liked it just as much, just a little less mint flavor. Which was okay, obviously, since it only lasted such a few days.
