Right now (in the dead of Winter) I’m enjoying anything “minty”... As I was putting all the Christmas decor away a few days ago, I hesitated a minute as I headed to the garbage can with a handful of candy canes. It brought back some sweet memories.
I decided to put those candy canes to good use this year. I found a few variations of peppermint pie, and decided to add white chocolate for richness, and unflavored gelatin to make it a little lighter. In a homemade pastry crust, it was truly delicious. To (easily) fancy it up - I drizzled Hershey’s Special Dark Ice Cream Topping over each slice.
Ever feel a twinge of guilt as you toss out all those candy canes in January? You’ll won’t want to when you try this just-rich-enough, but not-over-the-top variation of peppermint pie.
