Frango Mints

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by silly sally

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!
