    bojmom's Note:

    My mom gave me this recipe, which she got from my aunt who lives in Seattle. I guess Frango Mints are popular treats in the Northwest. They are called pies even though you make them using muffin tins. This dessert is one of my absolute favorites. As an option you can top each "pie" with vanilla wafer crumbs. We have never made them this way, but that is what the original recipe suggests as an option. They can be made ahead of time and last quite awhile in the freezer. Cook time includes freeze time.

      These were very easy to make. But the recipe doesn't specify when to add the melted chocolate, so I just guessed (which I added it with the peppermint extract). That seemed to work well. Frango Mints are indeed a Pacific NW favorite, so it is nice to have a tasty treat that is just as minty and chocolately but at a fraction of the cost. Mine came our very sticky though, so I would like to know what could be done to keep that to a minimum.
