Just discovered this recipe and adapted it to my liking. I love peppermint and chocolate in any form! Plus, despite my protests that it shouldn't even appear before the day after Thanksgiving, I'm seeing Christmas EVERYWHERE already (today is Halloween), and I am starting to look at things I'd like to make for the season. This one is on the list for sure!!! I could even see making them as mini-cupcakes (bite-sized is nice when putting treats on a platter).

This is not my photo; it was from Countdown to Christmas B page and mentioned Betty Crocker. Could be either of theirs.
