Hi everyone,

I am looking for a source (preferably Florida or in the Southeast for shipping purposes} for mint milk chocolate. I am located in Puerto Rico and want to make mint chocolate rum balls. I was experimenting with various recipes to come up with what I felt was a great product and I did. I used Hershey's mint sticks in the experimental recipe and then the project stopped when the world blew up in 08.

Can someone help me find a source or offer any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your reply,

Find a good milk chocolate, and find some peppermint oil - a few drops per kilo should do it.

Thanks. I will look into this and see what I can find. As you can tell, I don't know anything about chocolate and knew that I could find help here.

Why not just use natural peppermint oil to flavor your milk chocolate? That way you don't have to buy a specialty chocolate for just one product. You could probably find it locally in PR at stores that supply the candymaking industry or hobby.

Edit: woops missed jo's post stating exactly the same! great minds and all...
