Chocolate Peppermint Pie

I sprinkled the edges of the pie with smashed candy canes

Every year for Christmas Eve, I usually make my Red Velvet Cupcakes. This year, I wanted to mix it up a bit and try something new. I love Black Bottom Pies, so I used an old recipe as inspiration and Christmafied it, meaning add peppermint and edible holiday decorations.

This pie did not help my peppermint addiction. This holiday season I am obsessed with Peppermint, way more than I normally am during this time of the year. For some reason, a peppermint mocha from Starbucks just isn't cutting it.

I made this Chocolate Peppermint Pie for Christmas Eve and it was so good. It almost tastes like a pudding pie, but is a little bit more fudgy. I am thinking about making it again for New Year's Eve!

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies



The Holidays are my favorite time of year. Who doesn't love all the shimmering lights, ornamented garlands, Peppermint Mochas, and of course Christmas cookies? Every year my mother makes our family recipes that have been passed down from grandparents of grandparents. I, however, like to try out new recipes each year and have found this to be one of my absolute favorites (and now I am making it year after year). I recently made it for a cookie exchange party among friends and they were an instant hit. It's a double chocolate peppermint cookie, a combination of two of my favorite holiday flavors.
