A Cause for Jubilation: Peppermint & Gingerbread

             It just wouldn't be Christmas for me if I didn't have a few Candy Cane and Gingerbread treats laying around. There's nothing like the sweetness and spice of these two holiday staples. What are some of your favorite holiday sweets you must have and might not be inclined to share with Santa & his reindeer?


 Naomi from BakersRoyale decided she'd had enough of Starbucks holiday assortment of lattes and would make her own inspired creations in the form of a cupcake.

This mug I spotted on  NotMartha  decked out in a tiny candy cane roofed gingerbread house had the hubby and I running to the kitchen to turn on our Keurig. Now to only decide between White hot chocolate or Gingerbread  coffee. These adorable lil houses would be a perfect Christmas eve activity for the family.

I found the recipe here.

Around this time last year all my Hubby and CJ ever baked in the house were Snickerdoodles, to the point that I honestly couldn't stand the sight of them. This peppermint version seems like a lovely remix on an already tasty cookie. The Hubby loves new twists on his favorites and is looking forward to making these. In small doses I'm sure I will enjoy.
