I wanted so badly to make this week’s recipe: Wintermint Cake. I bought all of the ingredients, but life got in the way. Friday was my birthday and I really should have known that if I didn’t make it before Thursday it wasn’t going to happen. I’m still bummed and so are my kids, who LOVE chocolate and mint together.
I have to admit: I don’t usually like mint and chocolate together. But guess what I LOVE together? Chocolate and peanut butter. When I was invited to my first cookie swap of the season that one was a no-brainer. They turned out perfectly, even though I was worried they were going to spread out they baked up beautifully.
My mom baked these a lot when I was a kid so I loved the nostalgia factor as well.
My friend has a cool embroidery machine so I asked her to make myself and my mother in law a couple of presents:
Of course I got mine dirty already 😉 Even my cute aprons are put to work in my kitchen!
Go see how everyone else’s cakes turned out!
