Peppermint is such a predominant Christmastime flavor. Peppermint white mocha lattes are my favorite this time of year, but there are a million yummy ways to enjoy the festive flavor! Here are some fun new ideas to try…
1. Candy Cane Peppermint Puppy Chow
The genius behind this Candy Cane Peppermint Puppy Chow, aka Muddy Buddies, deserves an award! Try them frozen, too! YUM!
2. No Churn Peppermint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
I love that NO ice cream machine is needed! Get the recipe HERE.
3. Peppermint Oreo Truffles
I’ve made these with just OREO cookies before, but why didn’t I think of adding peppermint?? Ohhh yum! Get the recipe HERE.
4. Peppermint Crunch Popcorn
This Peppermint Crunch Popcorn makes a great holiday party snack or bag it up and gift it to your neighbors!
5. Peppermint Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake
This sounds like a combination of ALL my favorite things… Oh myyy! Get the recipe HERE.
6. Peppermint Fluff Dip
This Peppermint Fluff Dip only has a couple ingredients and it comes together in like 2 minutes. SO easy and delish!
7. Peppermint Marshmallows
If you’ve never made your own marshmallows before, trust me, it’s easier than you think! These would be so tasty in some hot chocolate! Get the recipe HERE.
8. Peppermint Meltaways
This is actually a recipe I’ve made numerous times. It’s a huge hit at Christmas cookie exchanges because the cornstarch in it gives it a very unique, “melty” texture, and the frosting is to die for! Get the recipe HERE.
9. Easy No-Bake Christmas Peppermint Patties
These are crazy easy and a great recipe for involving kids! Get the recipe HERE.
10. Thick and Fudgy Peppermint Mocha Brownies
I’m a sucker for a good, dense brownie, and these look like they might be the fudgiest (I don’t think that’s a word) yet. Get the recipe HERE.
11. No-Bake Peppermint Cheesecake
I actually prefer the texture of no-bake cheesecakes, and this pretty pink one looks perfect for Christmas. Get the recipe HERE.
12. Candy Cane S’mores
I love that these have chocolate spread on them PLUS the candy cane Hershey’s. YUMMMM! Get the recipe HERE.
BONUS: Sweet Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub
This Sweet Peppermint Sugar Scrub will make your skin as happy as all those other peppermint recipes make your mouth. I love sugar scrubs made with coconut oil, especially in the winter, so I just HAD to throw this in. Enjoy!
