foodie fridays: chocolate peppermint holiday bites
Indulge in the holiday spirit with chocolate peppermint holiday bites, offering a delightful blend of rich chocolate and refreshing peppermint flavors.
“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In a lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We’re happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland.”
There’s no other holiday quite like it.
From the calmness of the winter white snowfall to the festive holiday lights to roaring fires to endless pours of peppermint eggnog, it all has a special place in my heart. Christmas is the one time of the year where anything is possible. In a way, it’s magical.
The fact that one jolly, white-bearded man can ride in a sleigh with nine reindeer (one with a particular glowing red nose) around the world in one night delivering presents to all the good boys and girls is without a doubt, magical.
The fact that a curmudgeon of a man is visited by three spirits – past, present and future, and is a changed man overnight is crazy, but without a doubt, magical.
And the fact that a snowman who sings of silver and gold can bring someone instant joy….that is without a doubt, magical.
But what if I told you that I could add to this list?
What if I told you that a single, bite-size cookie contains all the Christmas magic you’ll need?
I realize this is a bold statement, but I don’t mess around when chocolate and peppermint are in the picture. What doesn’t scream Christmas other than peppermint icing piped between two miniature chocolate cookies and then topped with a layer of chocolate, and then decorated with holiday cheer?
Okay, besides the scene from Mean Girls when they are performing to “Jingle Bell Rock”, but you get the picture.
If you feel like spreading Christmas magic, then make these delicious cookies for the people you love.
This just came over the wire.

Wait a minute….I don’t have a wire….
