Dark chocolate and candy canes? Yes, please! It just had to be done.

We… Had… To…

You see, peppermint and chocolate have a special place in my heart. I make a peppermint hot cocoa almost every night during the cold winter months.

My friend, Lauren from Oatmeal with a Fork, has the most delicious recipe. I add a few drops of peppermint extract to her recipe and it is heavenly.

When Sarah so kindly shared a few pieces of this indulgent recipe with me I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. My mom has always made fudge, because she is a self-proclaimed chocoholic, but it has just never been my thing…until now.

 

After I tried this recipe, I was hooked.

 

I attribute it to the chocolate + peppermint combination. Is there anything that tastes better during the holidays?

Oh that reminds me, have you tried our Peppermint Mocha coffee syrup? Mmmm…I can’t wait to make it again this holiday season!

But, I digress.

Like I said earlier, this is definitely a splurge recipe.

They are not something you want to eat every day or too often if you are living a healthy lifestyle. That is why I limit myself to one batch per year and that is where I draw the line.

But you may say, “I want to eat these every day!”

I feel ya. I do too! That is why I have created a healthy alternative for you that you can eat EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

 

That’s right…EVERY SINGLE DAY!

 

Healthy nuts, dates, and peppermint combine into our decadent Peppermint Cocoa Bites.

You will be amazed at how simple they are to make and your family will LOVE them!

They are the perfect snack or lunch box item.

Make a double batch, freeze them, and enjoy them for weeks to come!

Don’t you love how we combined a “splurge” and a “slim” recipe all in one? It might just be a new trend here at G&S…

Ingredients
  • 3 cups dark chocolate chips We used Ghiradelli
  • 14 oz (1 can) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2-3 candy canes, crushed
Servings: pieces
Instructions
  1. Line an 8 x 8 pan with aluminum foil. Cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine the dark chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a double boiler over medium heat. Heat until melted. *If you do not have a double boiler pan set, you can heat a 2 QT pan of water, and place a large glass or metal bowl containing the chocolate chips over it to melt the chocolate chips.
  3. Stir mixture until smooth, then add peppermint extract. Stir well until combined.
  4. Immediately pour mixture into your foil-lined pan. Use a spatula to smooth the surface, then sprinkle on the crushed candy canes.
  5. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until set and hardened. Cut into small squares and enjoy..in moderation..yes, it will be difficult!
