Peppermint Bark Dip is the perfect guest to invite to your upcoming holiday party!
We’ve had 7 holiday events in the last ten days! I love all the fun that comes with the holidays. And with those holiday parties comes all the holiday food. Peppermint is definitely the flavor of the season and if you are looking for a delicious, sweet and pepperminty treat to take to your next holiday event, you’ve found it.
Peppermint Bark is one of my favorite things about this time of year and every year it becomes a contest for me to see how many different peppermint bark flavored treats I can find. I am particularly found of the limited edition Peppermint Bark Haagan Daz ice cream that comes out this time of year. It’s the ice cream I buy and then hid in the back of the freezer so I don’t have to share. Those white chocolate peppermint M & M’s are also at the top of my list.
For one of our parties I was asked to bring an appetizer. Appetizers don’t always have to be savory, in fact one of my favorite dips that I’ve shared here on the blog is the chocolate chip cookie dip! That stuff is addictive and so is this peppermint bark version. I used a combo of cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and Cool Whip. For the peppermint part, you can either crush up some candy canes or if you are lucky enough to find crushed peppermint candy in the bulk section of your grocery store, you’ll save some time.
If you want a lot of peppermint flavor you can also add in a little peppermint extract but I found that the candy cane worked just great so I used a bit of vanilla extract.
For the dipping part, I like to use the mini vanilla wafers or for a bit more chocolate, try the mini Oreo cookies. Of course, a spoon would work just fine too.
