This recipe is an ode to my son Gavin. He loves these Peppermint Chocolate Bundts. Why? a.) Gav loves Christmas and these mint sensations scream Christmas, b.) Gav loves to be able to grab it right off the plate, no flatware necessary, and c.) Gav loves cream cheese frosting.
Woodland critters?!? How could you not think of the holidays with these cuties? As we speak, I’m currently sitting in my hot LA kitchen conjuring up a forested winter wonderland, with a blanket of snow on the ground, a moose and a hedgehog frolicking among the trees.
There’s a secret when it comes to this ridiculously good Chocolate Pumpkin pie: it’s pretty darn easy. I might have had a huge potluck dinner to go to last Saturday night, and maybe signed up for dessert, and let’s just pretend that I forgot about it entirely until late afternoon, day of the party.
Yep, it’s hard not to love the classic peppermint bark that is ubiquitous this time of year – but there’s honestly nothing like the salty-and-sweet combo of peanut butter and chocolate.
