Peppermint patties. Chocolate peppermint bark. Peppermint hot chocolate. It’s finally that time of the year when I can be honest and open about my (mildly crazy) chocolate peppermint addiction.
While it’s super tasty, it’s not fun having to explain why you are eating peppermint ice cream in a chocolate dipped cone in the middle of summer. It’s worst having to justify why you have such an abundance of candy canes in the middle of July. However, come the -ber months, it’s perfectly normal and encouraged to eat your weight in chocolate peppermint galore. I’m kicking off December with this rich, decadent, and oh so delightful chocolate peppermint cake.
