In Response to Re: Nestles new Dark Chocolate:
They were out for a limited time at the hoildays. I make my own using the dark, semi sweet or white morsels. Just put in a zip lock bag and add ¼ teaspoon pure peppermint extract, shake it up and let it sit over night. If you don't have overnight use 1/2 teaspoon. It is better if they sit overnight and have time to absorb the flavor. I use them in all my favorite recipes until mixed ones are back at Christmas time.

Kelly...I just had a "Duh" moment when I read your solution for the mint chips. Why did I never think to add an extract to the chips and let it sit and absorb the flavor.
I just may have to try this with almond flavoring for my next batch of cookies.
Thank you for the idea and reading all the posts from people that miss the mint chips when the season is over I am sure you have helped lots of my friends here.
