Peppermint bark cream puffs are easy to make, but feel so fancy! Serve them up after Christmas dinner.
Do you ever feel like you just want to be a little bit fancy?
My family is here for none of the fancy shenanigans, thanks so much. I come up with all kinds of fabulous ideas and they are all shot down with zero consideration. Family dinner by candlelight? Nope, because one can see a thing. Water served in my pretty wine glasses? One of the dogs will inevitably run right into the table and knock them over.
It’s like…I know that I have all this fancy potential, but it will never be brought to reality. Quite a shame, friends. Quite a shame indeed.
I’ve had so many fun ideas for Christmas treats, but all anyone around here wants are snickerdoodles and muddy buddies. No that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. It’s just that I know I’m capable of so much more.
“What about CREAM PUFFS?!” I ask. “I can make all kinds of fun flavors! We can have a cream puff night and watch CHRISTMAS MOVIES!! In front of a FIRE! A fire and fancy Christmas cream puffs!!”
Blank stares. “Are you going to make fudge?” my husband asks. “I really like that recipe on the back of the marshmallow fluff container.”
You see what I’m dealing with? I’ll never reach my full fancy potential. So I had to take matters into my own hands.
Peppermint Bark Cream Puffs just for us! We don’t’ have to share with those ungrateful weirdos. Let’s just have a cream puff party — you and me. We can drink out of wine glasses and maybe have a tray of finger foods on toothpicks. Toothpicks with colored ruffles on top! Doesn’t that sound so grand?
If the thought of making fancy cream puffs scares you, don’t let it. If you follow the simple instructions, they’ll come out perfectly. And the ingredients — butter, sugar, flour, water, and eggs — couldn’t be simpler.
You’re going to love these!
