Mmmm, chocolate mint

Caroline and I made my favoirte Ritz cracker cookies this week for a cookie exchange. All you do is dip Ritz crackers in bag of melted chocolate chips with 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Then sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. They taste like a chocolate covered oreos.... yum!

Caroline helped by sprinkling the candy on all of them.

Chocolate peppermint shakes became our other holiday favorite last year. I'd caught part of a commercial for the Chic-Fil-A Peppermint Chocolate Chip shakes and made a revised version. It's just a candy can per shake with milk (you blend that first), vanilla ice cream, and chocolate syrup. We had some whipped cream on hand this year, so I made it fancy with colored sugar too.

Mmmmm! Will there be any of these left by the time you come to Tyler? Hope so or we will have to make a fresh batch. Margaret, are you bringing peanut butter fudge?

My mouth is watering...those sure look good Caroline. Your sprinkles are perfect:)
