Nothing says winter quite like peppermint, right?  Just the thought of it can make your tongue tingle. When I was very young, my dad used to take me to a magical place called Peppermint Park in NYC. We would go there in the winters and order peppermint ice cream with crushed peppermint candy on top.  Whenever I taste peppermint, it reminds me of our special winter visits to Peppermint Park.  That restaurant doesn’t exist anymore, but instead I’ll leave you with this fun roundup of the cool and crisp tasting herb in wintry desserts. Think bark, candy canes, and yes, even macarons!

How will you incorporate peppermint into your holiday desserts?

  • OH! I love peppermint! Our candy canes (here in Germany) are unfortunatley without peppermint, so I am always searching for good recipies (and I can find much more in USA 🙂 ) And yes, I will prepare some for Christmas.
    have a nice time
    Best wishes

  • The latest clash occurred in Hotan Prefecture, in the southern part of Xinjiang, whose population is predominantly Uighur. The Uighurs are a Turkic-speaking group sharing many affinities with people across Central Asia, and most follow relatively moderate forms of Sunni Islam. Many Uighurs resent the growing number of Han Chinese people, who have been attracted to Xinjiang by jobs in farming, energy production and mining.
