On the 7th Day of Sugar my true love gave to me . . . . Peppermint Cream Bites
It definitely wouldn’t be right if I didn’t post at least one peppermint recipe for this 12 Days of Sugar.
I love anything peppermint so please tell me why we tend to only make peppermint desserts around the holidays? I just don’t get it.
Anyway, I made these peppermint cream bites a couple days ago and went crazy over how good they tasted, but was less than thrilled with how they looked after I tried cutting them. The chocolate cracked, the oreo crust was crumbly and fell apart and all three layers separated from each other. Obviously I wasn’t about to try and take pictures so I did my best to piece them back together, threw them on a plate and took them to our neighborhood Christmas open house. I was a little embarrassed at how they looked (which is why I hurried and baked some beautiful chocolate chip cookies) but the fact that the plate was empty in about 3 minutes flat, tells me other people don’t care how things look.
I made them the next day and revamped things a little. Final verdict . . . .much, much, better. The crust is still a little crumbly, but far, far better than it was.
These are delicious! Oreo crust topped with a smooth peppermint layer and then finished off with melted chocolate – so so, fabulous!
