Mint Chocolate Disks

random amblings Dec 5, 2008 07:10 AM

Been looking for those quarter-sized mint chocolate disks to make DH's favorite cookies.
TJ's used to carry them, and long ago they were made buy the company that makes nonpareils.
So far no luck. Next stop is Andes mints, but I would rather the original. I'm west of Boston.

    They're back but not exactly the same. Much stronger mint flavor.

      if you like mint chocolate, you might enjoy Nardini Amaro (an Italian aperitif w/ chocolate mint notes)

        Trader Joe's has them. I bought a bag last week. Yum.

      I used to love those discs at TJ's. Have not found any locally. In the King Arthur catalog they carry chocolate discs, no mint but they do carry mint chips. 5.95 for a pound.

          at the mem drive tr j the other night, I saw another mint choc candy drop- w/ a sugar shell; in a tin i think. that product should work fine for you. otherwise , try WF. BTW, your husb would probably swoon over the TRJ chocolate covered chocolate cookies with crumbled mint candy outside and in. wickEDDDDDD!

            Try Michael's, or other crafts stores, for similar items in the candy-making section.

              Sold in Quantity by this company. They are very friendly people up there and maybe you can order a smaller quantity? Their quality is very high IMO, love all their stuff.


              They also have a smaller quantity bag of Mint Crunch. You may be able to find these at Whole Foods as they carry a lot of their items:
