Mint Sandwiches and Holiday Food Party

Chocolate Mint Candy; These easy candies are made with layers of chocolate and mint.

Mint Sandwiches from Jen's Favorite CookiesThis December is shaping up to be  an… umm… exciting one.  For lack of a better word.

After spending Thanksgiving recovering from pneumonia, which is, by the way, one of the least pleasant experiences I have ever had, my kids also got sick, my husband left town on a business trip and then my fridge died.

Merry Christmas, right?

I spent my week shopping for refrigerators and not for groceries, and running all my fridge-purchase-decision-questions past Robb over the phone.


And thus, this week’s dessert is simple, easy, and requires no refrigeration.

My Grandfather used to give all the girls in the family a box of mint sandwiches for Christmas, so this recipe holds nice memories for me.  To make life easy, I used candy melts like those in the links below.  If you want a nicer quality candy, you could splurge on better quality chocolate.

Either way, these simple candies make such a wonderful and memorable holiday treat!

  • 24 oz. chocolate candy melts

  2. Pour melted chocolate onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Spread out evenly, and let cool.
  3. Once first layer is set, (about 10-20 minutes) melt green candy for the second layer. Once melted, quickly stir in peppermint extract. Pour over first layer, and spread evenly. Let cool and set.
  4. Melt remaining chocolate candy, and spread over green layer. Let set.
  5. Use a large knife to cut candy into squares.

  1. Oh my! What time you have had since Thanksgiving. At least you have a new fridge now! I love new appliances. Might fine sweet treat sandwiches you have here. I see them being made for many holiday occasions.

  2. I really want to take a big bite out of the screen right now. And, just to be clear, your husband didn’t leave town to avoid getting sick, right? :)

  3. I’m so happy that you are on the mend, you’ve had a rough go the last few weeks! So now, mint sandwiches, essential big Andews mints yes? Good, I’ll take a box please!

  4. Oh my goodness! Sounds like you’ve used up a whole year’s worth of bad luck in a couple of weeks… hopefully that means you’ve got nothing but good karma for the next while!
    Love how easy and fuss-free this recipe is. That way, I can make one batch for gifts and one batch for me to eat all by myself when no one is looking. ;)

  5. Hopefully Christmas goes much better for you! Love these mint sandwiches. I love mint anything.
