Peppermint Holiday Desserts

December 8, 2013 by Jenny Melrose

As a child I loved the red and white candy canes that we always hung on our Christmas tree every year.  They always made me think of trimming the tree with a family and going through all of our handmade and sentimental ornaments.  Even to this day, I look forward to the flavor of peppermint because it brings me right back to those holiday memories.  These Peppermint Holiday Desserts are easy and yet absolutely delicious.  They’d make a perfect handmade gift this holiday season.

    YUM!! I don’t even know where to start on all these peppermint recipes. I too love candy canes and love hanging them on the Christmas tree, but the bottom half seems to always be bare as my munchkins can’t help themselves. Thanks for all the treat ideas everyone!!
