I know, I know…you’re thinking these are too “Christmas-y”, aren’t you? Think I’m a little late posting these? No way. These babies are great year round.
I should have doubled the recipe and stuck some in the freezer, because I could reeeeeeallllly go for a few right about now. Yum.
Don’t feel like using peppermint? Sprinkle pretzel crumbs on top. Or sea salt. Or graham cracker crumbs. Use your imagination!
