Peppermint Christmas Sweets

{Via}
Normally I don’t have a big sweet tooth, which is ironic because as a child all I would eat was candy and anything that had sugar in it, but at Christmas time I can never seem to get enough of all the wonderful peppermint treats! Considering all the peppermint treats I have come across lately I am convinced you can put peppermint in almost anything and get away with it: peppermint cake, peppermint brownies, peppermint bark, peppermint cookies, the infamous peppermint mocha, the list could go on and on! Seeing that it is the season where candy canes and peppermints rule why not go crazy with this fabulous red and white sweet! Below are a few delicious peppermint recipes I have recently come across. Click on the name of the peppermint desert, located below the image, for the recipe.

  1. I love those lovely peppermint champagne drinks! This week I've been indulging in peppermint bark (and lots of other stuff I normally don't eat) and it's been very fun! Wishing you a merry merry!
