Peppermint: The Key Ingredient

My roomate and I decided to kick start our winter break with some baking…so long as it involved some peppermint. Peppermint bark, peppermint gluten free sugar cookies, chocolate chip peppermint cookies and peppermint rice krispies.

The peppermint bark was delicious but I will have to make it again for the regular chocolate to the white chocolate ratio was  bit off. We used this recipe.

For the peppermint gluten free sugar cookies, we used a basic sugar cookie recipe, substituting for gluten free flour and adding crushed candy canes. And for the chocolate chip peppermint cookies we just added crushed peppermint to a standard chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Now…the peppermint rice krispies were my favorite. A few weeks ago we bought peppermint marshmallows for our hot cocoa, then decided they would be the perfect substitution for regular marshmallows in rice krispie treats, and well, we were right. (Although you will need a few more then 40 peppermint marshmallows)
