  1. My kids will love this! Great idea. Sounds very tasty.

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. I'm not a pastry guy, but I could probably make this. And enjoy it.

    If I didn't get distracted by the pudding, that is...

  3. The 1st sentence of MY comment was literally going to be the same as the 1st of MEL'S. (Stupid Mel.)

    Seriously, my kids have always been mint freaks so this would be right up their alley. I might even switch the small gingerbread loaves I make for the teachers each year with some of these. Great one, Sandi.

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. Thanks All... This is easy and good.. You don't even know the pudding is in there... have a Great Holiday ....

  5. I think you should make one for everyone! Ha! sounds so good.

  6. Sounds delicious and easy enough to do:) thanks for sharing!

    1. It really is easy, plus this year I didn't evan grease and flour the pans but just used Pam spray heavely, and they pop right out of the pans... Thanks for you comment....Merry Christmas....
