One of my favorite candies this time of year is the Andes mint chocolate. The rich taste with a hint of mint hits the spot. Now add the Andes mint chocolates into a toffee bar with some peppermint and you got Andes Toffee Bars.

If you like more of a chocolate taste rather than the traditional sweet and salty toffee bars made with nuts than this recipe is a great one to make. I like to bring some to the holiday party…

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The J.M. Smucker Company. The opinions and text are all mine. I will be the first to admit that I’m a caffeine addict. I’m constantly drinking it all day long from soda to coffee as it gets me through my long days at work and then coming home to be a mom. I don’t always have the time to make coffee at home so that is why I rely on Dunkin’ Donuts®  Original Cold Brew Coffee year round. You get that ultra-smooth, full-bodied coffee overnight and it is ready to enjoy…

It helps beat the heat and has great flavor, especially when there’s several to choose from such as unsweet, sweet, raspberry, hint of lemon, and green tea with honey. My family and I love Sweet Tea and Tradewinds Tea makes the best sweet tea. Did you know that you can cook with it too? It adds extra flavor with a hint of sweetness. I had fun experimenting and found this recipe for Sweet Tea…
