The first of our Holiday! Spectacular! Candy! Recipes!

Frango Mints
1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips
(= 2 cups)
1/4 lb butter, room temp (not margarine)
1 1/8 cups powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons imitation vanilla
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract or rum extract

Melt the chocolate over hot water, then cool.
Cream butter.
Add powdered sugar.
Mix.
Add eggs; beat well.
Add cooled chocolate, vanilla and flavoring.
Mix well and drip on waxed paper.

Things we do:
Use dark chocolate chips. So tasty, sets a little firmer as well.
Play with flavorings – orange is great.
Use a pastry gun. Makes cute little shapes possible.
