It's December 23rd, and I've just been to Costco, Target and the grocery store. Me and everyone else on this planet! Although everyone is scrambling, I just wanted to share one more super easy festive Christmas treat. Go ahead. Grab a cake mix or a box of brownies, but top it with this delicious peppermint cream cheese frosting.
This frosting reminds me of the creamy peppermint candies that my aunt and uncle had at their Christmas wedding. I'm pretty sure that I ate at least a dozen of them. I was only five or six, but I can still remember that delightful ambrosia!
Use a large star tip for piping and garnish with peppermint bark or peppermint Hershey kisses! People will think that you slaved all day!
Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting
1stick of butter
8 ounces cream cheese
3-4 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
pinch of salt
Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Continue mixing. Add peppermint oil and salt. Pipe onto brownie bites or mini cupcakes. Garnish with peppermint Hershey kisses or peppermint bark.
