Chocolate Peppermint Treats

Melanie Montanez and Avery Amato

Tis the season for delicious holiday treats. It’s finally the holiday season meaning that bakeries and stores are filling up with Christmas and holiday-themed goods.  These desserts span from a gingerbread house to white chocolate peppermint cookies. One of the wonderful things about Christmas is the combination of two well-known flavors: chocolate and peppermint. Chocolate brings the sweet milky feeling of Christmas, while peppermint brings a warm, tingling sensation to your tongue.  During the holiday season, peppermint and chocolate baked goods are everywhere and are sensational flavors of the holiday season. Well-known places like Starbucks contain peppermint-flavored items. These popular frappuccinos are the “Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage” and the “Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage.” Many enjoy the combination of chocolate and peppermint during the entire holiday season.

 

Here are some recipes to bring out the holiday spirit:
