I'm in mint condition. (But for a limited time only)

I know I'm not the only one who hates the fact that the stores are already filled with Christmas crap when we haven't even properly celebrated Halloween. I mean, it's tough to get into the spirit of buying your annual ugly Christmas sweater when you haven't even carved your annual ugly jack-o-lantern, right?

Know what though? As much as I detest early Christmas decor, I adore early holiday baking products.

And they're back. My favorite baking chips!!

Get 'em while they're hot folks, because in just 2 1/2 short months, these babies will not be found in any grocery store and will be selling for $5.00 a bag on Ebay, the exploiter of all things not available elsewhere.)

And yes, I do have a problem with dark chocolate mint ANYTHING.

You might want to try these dark chocolate mint cookies. They take chocolate chip cookies to a whole new level. Like heaven, maybe.

Oh yeah! The greatest baking invention EVER! Those mint chips take 5 minute fudge to a whole new level of happiness. I actually keep chocolate fudge in my freezer for when I need just a little chocolate hit. I may run out of sugar or eggs - but always have my chocolate stash..

Enjoy your day sweet Maggie.

Why have I never seen these? Mint chocolate chip is Hubby's favorite ice cream. He'd die and go to heaven if he bit into a chocolate chip studded with these babies. I'm making room in the big freezer and going shopping. Heck, someday you might have to deal with me on eBay. :)

Mags, thanks for the info. Now I know how to supplement my income. I'm going buy every bag in the tri-state area and then sell them on ebay.

You've got my number with these dark chocolate mint chips, Mags! I'm with you, in that holiday baking ingredients can never show up too early in the season. Hey, have fun shopping for that "ugly" Christmas sweater! Hope you're doing great these days. :)

Um, I hate to admit this to you, but I have two bags in my freezer from last year. I tended not to use the cause Grumpy griped. :-p
