The clean taste of peppermint is a must in baking and dessert recipes. Look here for peppermint slices, peppermint creams, peppermint cake and peppermint crisp.
Admittedly, making homemade peppermint patties sounds crazy considering how you can buy them. I’ll definitely do these again! Just about anybody can make Pink Peppermint Patties. The results are vastly superior to bought ones (read: mmmm FRESH). I will go so far as to call them “foolproof,” as long as you don’t count slopping melted chocolate all over your arms as a mistake because you can lick it off. Not a problem in my book.
This is a lovely homemade peppermint chocolate ice cream that is a little lighter and brighter through the use of low fat milk.
This recipe is a bit unorthodox and requires mayonnaise in place of eggs, oil and salt, but it is the the secret to rich and most cupcakes. These rich cupcakes are spiked with candy canes for an amazing seasonal treat!
This is a great peppermint flavoured biscuit that also contains chocolate chips. Great to have with a cup of hot chocolate.
These simple-to-make mints make great Christmas gifts. If stored in airtight container, these can be frozen for a couple of months.
