Peppermint Dessert Recipes That'll Make It Feel Like The Holidays

How Sweet It Is

Peppermint is a major player in making the holiday season great. Once Thanksgiving passes, and we've tired of our pumpkin spice lattes, peppermint recipes reinvent all of our favorite foods -- and it's always great, except when in the form of Pringles. Peppermint is just what we need, exactly right now. Refreshing, sweet and reeking of holiday spirit, it's an instant mood elevator and our favorite way to end a meal or take a break and savor the season.

Peppermint recipes can be found in the form of hot chocolate and fudge, cookies and cakes. Why we don't add peppermint to our desserts the rest of the year, we'll never understand. Here are 33 peppermint desserts we love.
