Well, it tasted good, but the white chocolate chips didn't melt. I ended up dropping teaspoons of it on the mint candy base that looked like mashed potatoes. I may try white candy bark next time.

With Christmas just days away, I prepared this for goodie bags. OMGosh! This may not even get to a goodie bag, it is so good. Definitely a 5-star winner. Both hubby and I cannot keep our hands out of it. This truly tastes like it came from a famous candy shop. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor.
