I was in the grocery store one afternoon (typical afternoon activity) and I found Andes Mints baking pieces. I bought them knowing that I would find something scrumptious to make with them. I originally thought about cookies, but I think this was a much better idea!
In our church family we signed up for Secret Santas. So I decided to make some fudge for our Santa family. And while making it I thought that mint fudge would be divine. So I took out the andes mints. And here we are!!!! While making the fudge I added some of the pieces into the mix and they melted leaving a minty yummy taste. Then topped the fudge with some more. I even have a few left over for cookies later on. I'm so excited!!! I just hope my Santa family enjoyed eating this as much I enjoyed making it.
