Peppermint the Flavor of Christmas – Lori’s Top 5 Peppermint Treats
I love peppermint. Anything peppermint makes me happy. Since Christmas brings us the Candy Cane, it also brings us some really awesome peppermint treats. Here are my top 5 favorite peppermint treats that you can get during the holidays.
Candy Canes are the epitome of peppermint. I love sucking on these little beauties each Christmas season. It seems like an never ending treat. However, I really don't like it when my candy cane breaks.
I fell in love with this tasty treat in 2006. I was pregnant with Ethan and I had just spent 3 days in the hospital due to some heart problems. I was starving and really hadn't eaten in 3 days so I wanted a Blizzard. We pulled up to the drive through and saw this delicious tasty treat and my love affair with the Candy Cane Chill Blizzard started. Peppermint Candy, chocolate chunks and vanilla soft serve mixed together make a delicious treat.
I found this new treasure in the store the other day. We love marshmallows in our home and when I came across these they instantly became my favorite. Not only are they tasty to eat, they make a ordinary cup of hot chocolate sing. I make a regular cup of hot chocolate and top with a handful of these tasty morsels and my hot chocolate is transformed into a Peppermint Hot Chocolate.
This would have been number one on my list, but recently that changed. This is my favorite Hershey Kiss of all time. It is a white chocolate peppermint kiss with tiny little peppermint crunchies mixed inside. You pop one and let it melt in your mouth, pure heaven!
As I mentioned earlier, the Kisses would have been my number one Peppermint Christmas treat until the other day when I was shopping and ran across these babies. I was skeptical about them until I got them home and opened the bag. It was the traditional Oreo with chunks of peppermint mixed. OMGosh, I have fallen in love. That red/white Oreo cream on a chocolate cookie dipped in milk. YUM!
