Oh goodness, these were yummy. I made them in December & am just now getting around to blogging. But do not fret! You can substitute nuts or butterscotch candy pieces or jolly rancher candy pieces or white chocolate chips... the substitutions can go on & on for the peppermint!!! Try pastel mints for Easter!
