I started making these several years ago, when my niece gave me the recipe. Her's didn't have mint in them though. I added it. I have tried about everything to coat them with. Don't do crushed peppermint! It will start to drip on you. Like, turn to water & be real sticky. I do like crushed pretzels though as a coating. It gives it a salty/sweet taste.
