Those wonderful, delectable, melt-in-your-mouth chocolates...those of you in the Northwest, especially, will recognize these candies. The recipe comes from a cookbook put out by volunteers and employees of a hospital in Washington state. Delish!! The number of mints you get, depends on how big you make them. I usually make them the size of a quarter or thereabouts. Refrigeration time is not listed.

I make these every year, they will melt in your mouth! In the morning I will even drop one in my cup of coffee!

These were really tasty, but mine did not turn out as creamy as a Frango Mint. Maybe it was a texture thing, so next time I might try spreading in a pan and cutting as one reviewer suggested. Maybe it was the chocolate I selected; I used Baker's Chocolate Chunks. My youngest daughter entered them into the fair; I will keep you posted about the results.

Yummy! My mom has been making these for years. She got the recipe from my gramma who has been making them even longer. I like putting them into candy cups, as well. I know my mom would put it in a glass baking dish (to set), cut it into small pieces and wrap. I like to add different flavorings and even use different chocolates. White chocolate is nice, because you can color. My favorite combo is dark chocolate with raspberry.
