17. Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies by Creme de la Crumb

These cookies are more like bars which means one fewer step (cutting one giant cookie into bars rather than rolling out individual ones) and there’s icing and peppermint crunchies. Soft, chewy cookies, peppermint, icing, crunching…it’s a plethora of flavors and textures!

18. Peppermint Popcorn by Simply Scratch

This is the one is also sweet, salty and crunchy. Plus, since it’s popcorn it’s totally a snack and not a dessert, amiright?!

19. Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes by Sally’s Baking Addiction

Could these be any more decadent? Sally adds coffee into the cake mixture which really brings out the chocolate flavor and elevates the whole profile of the cupcake.

20. Peppermint Stick Cookies by Craft Foxes

These wafer cookies look like those cookies that come with really fancy coffee drinks. I never thought to make them at home!

24. Peppermint Party Punch by Kara’s Party Ideas

This is dessert in the form of punch! Now that’s a party!

Peppermint recipes roundup

Okay so I know there is another recipe for fudge on this roundup but that one is layered and this one is sweet-and-salty. Totally different! Totally delicious.

26. Peppermint and White Chocolate Cream Pie by Better Homes and Gardens

This dessert is easy to throw together and a great make-ahead idea. Just beware, you need time for the dessert to set. You might as well have it ready-made and stashed in the freezer at all times, just to be safe!

27. Peppermint Taffy by Taste of Home

This recipe reminds me of the saltwater taffy I used to get when we went down the shore as kids. Who doesn’t want a little something to remind them of childhood and the sea?

28. Peppermint Thumbprint Cookies by Creme de la Crumb

These beauts take an hour to make or less, and the quicker I can take ingredients, put them together, and then put them in my mouth, the better!

29. Chocolate dipped Peppermint Marshmallows by A Beautiful Plate

Another marshmallow recipe because I just couldn’t help myself. This one is dipped in chocolate, so it’s basically 100% different.

A recipe for DIY peppermint candy, or candy canes if you shape them right, I’ll just leave this last recipe here for you…
