Chocolate Mint Candy; These easy candies are made with layers of chocolate and mint.
This 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.
If you haven’t yet, it’s time you met my friends!

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!
