mint m&ms


The minty cousins are coming home for the holidays. And they’re welcome to stay as long as they can.

Puffy, and slightly larger than a plain m&m, these resemble the taste of those dutch mints, or dutch pastels that you would find by the hostess station at some “finer” restaurants (see image below).

Tangent- the whole open candy bowl, grab a handful of mints, is a pretty gross feature. These days you get individually packaged mints, which seems better.

Ok, back the the m&ms…The candy shell is crunchy, and the interior is smooth mint chocolate. I think I’m hooked on these. I bet these would be good frozen, too.

Here’s a recipe for using them in cookies. The recipe from “little bitty bakes” sounds good and looks great.

I also could imagine these m&ms as decorating some sort of christmas cake. They would look pretty in a glass apothecary jar, but that harkens back to the afore mentioned candy bow, so I’ll steer clear of that.

I will go and get another bag today since my family ate the last bag. If you spot them, pick up a bag for yourself.

  1. I like ’em because they’re so much bigger than the traditional flavor:-)

  2. The other day I was visiting with a friend who had an open bowl of these little minty delights next to her computer in her home office.
    I had never had them before, and was very glad to sample more than a few even if it was from a semi-private candy bowl. If I had them in my house, I am not sure we would ever make it to the “bowl” stage. I think it would be a-right-out-of-the-bag situation.
