    Easy & Delicious! The peppermint center is just like a York Peppermint Patty - Loved them. Very rich so cut into small squares. I didn't have crushed candy cane on hand so I just used decorative xmas sprinkles. And I used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream. Will be a part of my annual xmas baking!

    Can you substitute chocolate chips for the semi-sweet baking chocolate?
