      What a delicious little treat! I ended up using dark chocolate and 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract because I couldn't find a good quality mint flavored chocolate. The substitution worked out well! I loved the flavor of the nuts and peppermint together (I crushed the peppermints quite a bit). The combination of salty and sweet was awesome! Very easy to make too. Thanks for a great holiday recipe Bev!

      This was really simple and came out very good. Next time I will be sure to crush the peppermint more (as a previous reviewer had mentioned).
