I can't keep enough of this around. It is so easy to make. I did have to cut the baking time down to 7 min. anything over that and it burns quick.

This will be the 3rd year in a row I've made this candy. It's never failed me yet. This time I'm adding peanut butter chips as well as semisweet chocolate. Last year I chopped up the little mint hershy kisses. They were ahhhhhmazing in my humble opinion:)
