Okay, I’ll confess. These cookies are not really much like peppermint ice cream with hot fudge, but they are a really lovely combination of chocolate and peppermint.
Peppermint and I have some things in common, namely, that we are both close personal friends with chocolate, and we’re both tired of cherries and strawberries monopolizing the Valentines Day dessert scene.
Since I’m addicted to the Food Bloggers Network, and I’m addicted to popcorn, this recipe was a natural leap. And, at the risk of tooting my own horn even more than usual, let me tell you that this might be my most brilliant concoction ever. Seriously.
This peppermint bark was the Hippie Chick’s idea. And it was a fantastic one. We had fun making it together. We had fun eating it together, too.
