Just wanted to let you know that I featured this on my blog. Thanks for sharing it at the Create Link Inspire party! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Could not find Mint M&Ms but found both spearmint and a creme de menthe extracts at Cooks Nook. I chopped up equal amount of KitKat mint duo bars and added instead. It is sinfully good combo. Made a double batch as one is going to work potluck this week for St.Patricks Day.Can't wait to share it with workmates. They will go nuts.
Deb Attinella says
I wonder if they still make those M&Ms. Glad you figured out a substitute!
