Foodie Friday: Perfect Peppermint Presents & Recipes

{ Via: Half Baked Harvest

With frost in the air, a dusting of snow on the ground, and Christmas around the corner, peppermint just feels right these days. I love it best when paired with chocolate. Even if you aren't a baker or cook, this post includes fun and fabulous pre-made peppermint presents like a Peppermint Polka Dot Cake at Neimans (on sale with free shipping), and Williams-Sonoma's Peppermint Bark that is always a hit. Homemade or purchased from a trustworthy source, gifting food is always a good idea at the Holidays. Scroll down and get cooking!

HERE: 21 Perfect Peppermint Presents & Recipes  

Pomegranate and Peppermint Moscow Mules 
Of course, I am starting you off with a drink in hand. And could any cocktail be more festive? The candied mint leaves provide the perfect pinch of peppermint. 

Peppermint Ice Cream Candyland Cake
Like visions of sugarplum fairies. What a pretty little cake this is!

Baby It's Cold Outside Gift Box
A great gift for anyone crazy for cocoa!

Chocolate Peppermint S'Mores
These are a combination of peppermint marshmallows, chocolate peppermint graham crackers and a whole lot of chocolate and crushed candy canes.

Candy Cane Brownie Trifle
"You can’t get more decadent than brownies topped with Chocolate Peppermint Sauce and whipped cream." This trifle looks terrific.
The Food Charlatan  

Polka-Dot Peppermint Cake
Don't panic. I am not asking you to make this fabulous cake. You can buy it at Neiman's! It serves 10 -12 people, and would be a beautiful addition to your Christmas buffet.
Neiman Marcus

Free shipping on gourmet food, online through Friday only with code GOURMET. 
Friends & Family! 20% off  Code: FRIENDME.

Spiked Peppermint Eggnog Ice Cream
So this is happening at my home.
The Cookie Rookie 

Peppermint Bark Popcorn
This recipe takes about 10 – 15 minutes to make and it is completely addictive! Miss "Shop This" and I made it one year. I remember thinking it was messy, or maybe it was the Mistletoe Margaritas we were drinking? It was indeed delish, though!
Cooking Classy 

Peppermint Snow Tube
If they can't get enough peppermint in their life,...this makes a fun gift for the entire family. No, you can't eat this gift, but it sure has all of the Holiday feels.

Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Cake
Miss "Shop This" has a Christmas Eve Birthday. I just know that she would love this for her cake this year. Too bad she will be in Spain, and not with her Mama! If you are not a baker, the recipe calls for a box of brownie mix.
Life love & Sugar 

Peppermint Bark Chocolate Donuts
{ Gluten Free }
Here's just what you need for a Holiday breakfast. They are baked, not fried, and contain healthy ingredients. They are made with raw cacao powder, a superfood loaded with antioxidants, magnesium, and fiber. Finally a holiday treat that you don't have to feel too guilty about.

The Original Peppermint Bark
 A tradition in some families, and an unforgettable holiday confection with a perfect harmony of flavors and textures in every bite.

Peppermint Marshmallows
With a red swirl and drizzle of dark chocolate, these Peppermint Marshmallows are made in holiday heaven. The perfect pairing with a cup of hot chocolate.
Pastry Affair 

Peppermint Candy Cane Crunch Buttercream Frosting
Peppermint perfection! I think I would enjoy this recipe best with a spoon, but you can frost your favorite cupcakes, cakes and cookies with it.
Picky Palate 

Peppermint Brownie Skillets for Two
Aren't these the cutest? Presentation is key always, especially at the holidays. You can find the mini skillets HERE. The yummy recipe at
Foxes Loves Lemons

Peppermint Trees
I thought they were real, too. Made from red and white clay dough then sprinkled with glitter. Just perfect for your Holiday buffet or dinner table. You will have these for years.

Chocolate Peppermint Creme Brulee
This recipe is for Mollie. Hidden below all of that caramelized sugar is a creamy chocolate custard flavored with peppermint and coffee liqueur. Oh YUM!
 Kitchen Konfidence 

Spiked Peppermint Mochas
Made with Nespresso VertuoLine Limited Edition Swiss, this just looks delicious, even for this non coffee drinking girl. As far as the spiking, it's Peppermint Schnapps.
Glitter Guide  

Edible Peppermint Twist Shot Glasses
Made with sugar, these sure are a sweet way to serve a drink! I think I must have these to serve the chocolate vodka that I have in the bar. They are on sale now, too.

Peppermint Patty Flourless Chocolate Cake
A super decadent dessert that is ooey, gooey, and fudgy. And how festive is that edible gold and silver leaf?
Sugar Hero

Double Chocolate Bourbon Milkshake With Peppermint Bark
For those of you who would rather imbibe their dessert. This is right up my alley.
