It's Peppermint Latte Day!  Did you know that?  Well, today is the today to celebrate that favorite holiday drink.  But, what if you could celebrate that delicious peppermint drink in candy form?
I knew you would be in!  Get ready for the easiest little candy.  


Peppermint Latte Buttons have all that chocolate and peppermint flavor you love plus that coffee flavor too!  See, a peppermint latte in candy form.

Ingredients:
12 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp crushed peppermint candies
