Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake

Now that all the kid’s are gone back to school I am cleaning out the cupboards and the refrigerators (yes, we have more than one)  I’ve been throwing out the last remaining bits of Christmas candy, cookies etc. but the one thing I can’t bring myself to throw out are the leftover candy canes.  I always end up with leftover candy canes. In my husband’s family, after the holidays were over they would make peppermint ice cream with the left over candy canes.  I love peppermint ice cream. This year [Continue Reading...]

Peppermint White Chocolate Cookie Bark

I wasn’t planning on it but we may have to call this Peppermint Week.  This is the second peppermint recipe of the week and there may just be one more before I’m done. No surprises here but it uses my favorite flavor combination of the season – white chocolate and peppermint.  I posted something white chocolate and peppermint yesterday too but I just can’t seem to get enough of  the flavor combination! I have made a few other versions of cookie bark before. I’ve had some fun creating different types [Continue Reading...]

White Chocolate Peppermint Toffee

  Yesterday we had our annual candy/cookie making day with my girls, my mom and a few friends and neighbors.  This year it was more of a candy making day than a cookie making day. I love making candy and actually prefer it to cookies.  Candy stores better than cookies.  We made caramels, peppermint white chocolate fudge, rocky road fudge, boston creams, cinnamon white chocolate pretzels, chocolate crinkles, jam diagonals and today’s recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Toffee. A lot of people are afraid to make candy but really, as [Continue Reading...]

White Chocolate Peppermint Meringues

All I can say is blame it on the M & M’s.  Yes, the new white chocolate peppermint M & M’s are to blame for my current obsession with that flavor combination. Actually I think the flavor obsession started last Christmas.  Last December I attended my annual Beach Babe Christmas Tea.  One of my friend brought these amazing white chocolate peppermint meringues and lets just say I ate more than my fair share.  I loved them so much I went home and made them myself the next day.  I couldn’t [Continue Reading...]

Peppermint Cookie Bark

So the love affair with peppermint continues…. I just can’t seem to get enough of it! I have also had a love affair with cookie bark over the years if you look through my blog archives! I think I have a version for every holiday and season of the year. Two years ago I shared my Christmas version- Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark. I am excited to have today’s recipe for Peppermint Cookie Bark be a part of a very fun Holiday Sweet Treat event put on by 50 bloggers! Be [Continue Reading...]

Peppermint Ice Cream

So I have developed quite a love affair with peppermint this holiday season.  I blame it on those white chocolate peppermint M & M’s.  They got me started and I can’t seem to stop. When my husband was a kid they had a family tradition on New Years of making peppermint ice cream with all the leftover candy canes.  I like that kind of tradition. Tillamook Peppermint Candy Ice Cream is or should I say WAS one of my favorites.  This summer I discovered that Tillamook has discontinued Peppermint.  I [Continue Reading...]

White Chocolate Peppermint Blondies

 A few weeks ago my husband turned to me one day when we were in the car and told me he was in love! I of course expected him to follow up with “with you.” But instead he told me he was in love with the new white chocolate peppermint M & M’s. I had to admit that I was in love with them too. I had been secretly hiding a bag in myoffice drawer!! I couldn’t wait to bake with them and thought blondies would be the perfect thing.  [Continue Reading...]

Oatmeal Peppermint Dipped Cookies

Oatmeal Peppermint Cookies

I hope you don’t mind one more peppermint recipe. I do apologize to all you non-peppermint eaters.  I’ll try to do better next time!  But aren’t they pretty!? Oatmeal Peppermint Dipped Cookies Not only do I love the flavor of this cookie but I love the texture.  The chewiness of the oatmeal cookie is great but is made so much better when it is dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy cane.  Chewy and crunchy! I used my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and instead of chocolate chips I [Continue Reading...]
