Peppermint Desserts

  1. Peppermint bark is a classic holiday treat that’s both simple and delicious. To make it, melt some white chocolate and stir in a few drops of peppermint extract. Then, spread the chocolate onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. Let the bark cool in the fridge until it’s firm, then break it into pieces and enjoy.
  2. For a fun and festive twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie, try adding some crushed candy canes to the dough before baking. The peppermint flavor will add a nice touch to the cookies, and the red and white stripes of the candy canes will make them look extra-festive.
  3. Another easy and tasty peppermint treat is peppermint hot chocolate. Simply heat up some milk, add some cocoa powder and peppermint extract, and stir until everything is well combined. For an extra-indulgent treat, top your hot chocolate with whipped cream and a candy cane.
  4. If you’re looking for a show-stopping dessert to impress your guests, try making peppermint meringue cookies. To make them, beat some egg whites until stiff peaks form, then slowly add in sugar and peppermint extract. Drop the meringue mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake in the oven until the cookies are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  5. For a quick and easy peppermint dessert, try making peppermint fudge. All you need is some chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and peppermint extract. Simply melt everything together in a saucepan, then spread the mixture into a lined baking dish and let it cool until firm. Cut the fudge into squares and enjoy.
