    I don't know if they freeze well but I think they are easy to make...boyfriend's aunt makes these turtle things which is basically two pretzels with a rolo melted in between them. Fucking good!

    This was my signature thing I would make. It's cool because it's easy and part of the process requires you to freeze them. They do freeze well and are a favorite. Buckeyes.

    thanks dudette. need to check if confectioners sugar and icing sugar are the same, but these look like a candidate.

    Thansk boobs, these look more like a hey I just made these this morning item than for freezing.

    here it is:

    12 ounces quality white chocolate (like Ghirardelli)
    12 ounces quality dark chocolate (like Ghirardelli)
    1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy (I use starlite)
    Directions:

    1
    Line a 9x12 pan with parchment paper.
    2
    Melt the dark chocolate (use the method you prefer, either double boiler, or microwave - cook 30 seconds in a heat-proof bowl, stir and repeat until you have a smooth consistency.
    3
    Pour the melted dark chocolate on the parchment paper, spread the chocolate out until it is about 1/3" thick. You can do this by hitting the pan on the countertop repeatedly, or maybe you could use a spatula to spread the chocolate.
    4
    Melt the white chocolate, using the steps above. After the chocolate is smooth, pour it on top of the dark chocolate - trying to make the layers the same thickness. (it's best to do this step while the white chocolate is still very soft -- I've had them separate when I broke them into pieces, I think the layers "stick" together better if the white chocolate has not hardened).
    5
    Unwrap the starlite mints, or peppermints of your choice and put them into a heavy duty ziplock bag. Using a hammer or meat tenderizer - crush the mints then, while the white chocolate is still melted sprinkle on top.
    6
    Let the chocolates harden in the refrigerator for 2 hours, then break the candy into pieces. This needs to be stored in the refrgerator if you live in a warm/humid climate.




    the ghirardelli chocolate expensive, but worth it! delicious!
