Nothing says “the holidays have arrived” quite like peppermint desserts. Usually the first thought that comes to mind when peppermint is mentioned is candy canes. Candy canes are a staple on almost everyone’s Christmas tree! Peppermint is my personal favorite; minty, refreshing, and easily puts me in the holiday spirit!


 Hope you enjoy this roundup of heavenly peppermint desserts*!
