It’s no secret that we love peppermint around here. Ree Drummond even had her very own Christmas movie set in a fictional town called Peppermint Hollow! “If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to get me in the holiday spirit, it’s peppermint, ” Ree says. So it’s no wonder she has a ton of peppermint recipes that are perfect for your Christmas dessert spread. Whether you’re after a candy cane-inspired cake or a new Christmas cookie recipe , this list of festive minty treats is full of holiday flavor. We’ve actually included the peppermint brownie bites that Ree’s character in Candy Coated Christmas was known for! (The movie might be fictional, but the brownie recipe is very real. 😎)
Of course , this list of peppermint recipes features plenty of chocolate desserts , too. After all, there’s nothing like the combination of rich chocolate and fresh peppermint flavor. For instance, try the chocolate cupcakes with peppermint frosting, the chocolate-peppermint thumbprint cookies, or the peppermint bark! And speaking of Christmas candies , there’s also peppermint marshmallows, peppermint Oreo truffles, and homemade peppermint patties on this list, too. And if that wasn’t enough peppermint for your holiday celebration, you can always choose to whip up the peppermint martini for your Christmas cocktail !
