Double Chocolate Peppermint Dip gives you the holiday combination of peppermint and chocolate. Try with pretzels or cookies.
Happy Holidays to all you Chocolate Fanatics out there! I love this time of the year. I get to indulge in my favourite thing in the world and it's readily available everywhere you look.
Christmas is the time of the year where you can find great chocolate treats you may not see other times of the year. That makes me immensely happy. I love hitting the stores to see what's available. Then I proceed to buy out the store. It's what I do.
During the holiday season we like to have lots of easy snacks on hand. People are always popping by so I want to keep my fridge stocked with ingredients that can be whipped into something sweet quickly and easily. I always have cream cheese on hand. You can whip up no bake cheesecakes or dips really fast.
This dip is a riff on one I make all the time. We love sweet dips. In the summer I make them often so we can dip fresh fruit in it. In the winter we tend to dip cookies and pretzels in it. This one is perfect for pretzels. You've got white chocolate, milk chocolate, crushed peppermint and pretzels. The combination of sweet and salty is out of this world.
If you have extra time you can dip the pretzels in chocolate for an added level of business. I do that quite often if I have extra time. Just lay the pretzels on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then drizzle each colour over top. Give them about 20 to 30 minutes for the chocolate to set up and you're good to go. You can also pop them in the fridge or freezer to speed up the process.
I did not coat my pretzels this time around. I was baking up a storm the day I made this so I had limited space on my counters. I have a pretty small kitchen so my counter space is quite limited. One day I would love to have an island in my kitchen. I feel like considering what I do for a living having an island would make my life so much easier. For now I just get super creative where I place things.
On a good day things go smoothly, on a not so good day things end up on the floor. Let's just say I keep a Swiffer Wet-Jet in my kitchen at all times.
Hope you get a chance to try this one. It's a family favourite. Once I start eating this I cannot stop. So you've been forewarned. Get into some stretchy pants before you indulge. You can thank me for that later.
