This weekend we popped by the most enormous Trader Joe’s that I’ve ever seen and I was thrilled with their holiday section. I stumbled upon my favorite Peppermint extract and wanted to create something chocolate/pepperminty. The girls in my family are all huge fans of the combination. The flavor combination is reminiscent of the holidays and today, with our frigid temperatures, are also pushing me in that direction. Hard to believe that in just a few weeks we will have a Christmas tree in our house! Wasn’t it just summer?
