Even though I’m not a huge chocolate person, I do love chocolate and GREEN mint combinations.  I do NOT, however, enjoy that runny white mint stuff that they put in things?  Do you know what I’m talking about?  Anyways, Corrie is also a big fan, so I picked up some Andes baking bits since I knew he wouldn’t let them go to waste. 😉

As a side note, I went to their  recipe website to get link you back, and oh my goodness there were some delicious looking recipes like mint pillow cookies…dangerous.
