Great recipe! Very rich, even decadent. My family enjoyed them very much. The only change I made was that I didn't "shave" the mint candies for the topping, as I am not sure how one would go about doing that with a piece of candy that is 1 1/2" by 3/4" by 1/4". I chopped the candies into very small pieces instead, and sprinkled them over the frosting. Thanks!
