Tomorrow I plan on making a slew of cookies and a cake from scratch..two dozen butterscotch chocolate cookies, three dozen or more spritz cookies, 24 whip cream filled chocolate cupcakes and an oreo cheesecake. I just didn’t feel like this holiday was complete for me without a minty treat. Here is what I found to be the quickest and tastiest treat for everyone with a ‘minty’ tooth like yours truly. (I love mint!)
Peppermint Chocolate Graham Cracker Dessert
11 Graham crackers (full sheets)
1 cup Chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 stick of unsalted butter
3 large candy canes, crushed into bits
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
On a tin foil or parchment paper covered cookie sheet, line up the graham crackers.
In a small saucepan over medium heat melt the brown sugar and butter.
Pour sugar mixture over the graham crackers and spread across till all covered.
Place in oven and let bake for 6 minutes. The mixture will be bubbling and rising a touch above the rim of the sheet.
Add chocolate chips, and spread as they melt.
Add the smashed candy canes (or any topping you’d prefer–if I was in an allergy free home, I would use salted almonds!)
Once the chocolate is set, cut and serve!
