One of our favorite things about Christmas is the yummy flavor of peppermint. It reminds us of eating candy canes as a kid, visiting Santa, and all the warm memories of winter. It’s such a special flavor that goes hand-in-hand with Christmastime.
But not only does peppermint taste amazing, its cheery & festive red and white design is simply perfect. You can create amazing desserts featuring peppermint that are as beautiful as they are delicious!
One. This peppermint bark from Cupcakes and Cashmere looks divine! The directions say you can store the bark up to two months in a container, but we’re positive it we’d finish it in just a few days!
Two. These DIY Peppermint Spoons from Princess Pinky Girl are so creative! They would make a fabulous gift (especially for your neighbors or children’s teachers) or a fun activity with your children.
Three. Hot chocolate is delicious on its own, especially during these cold months. But this peppermint white hot chocolate from Gimme Some Oven looks ten times better! We can’t wait to snuggle up by the fire and drink a cup of this!
Four. The cold months are a great time to snuggle the family up for movie nights, and that means popcorn! This peppermint bark popcorn from Cooking Classy is a delicious twist on a classic movie snack.
Five. Craving something a little colder? This no-churn peppermint chip ice cream from A Family Feast is a great dessert idea! With plenty of flavor and a beautiful pink hue, this ice cream will definitely be a family favorite.
Six. Yum! This peppermint cheesecake dip from A Pumpkin and a Princess is such a fun party recipe. You can get creative with what you dip in it, but we have to admit those chocolate-covered pretzels look pretty amazing!
So cozy up to the fireplace with your family and indulge in some of these treats as you share memories of favorite winter moments and look forward to all the future brings. Wishing you a delicious Christmas!
