Mint Mania

I love chocolate mint! It’s always been one of my all time favorite flavor combinations! Over the years we have made several chocolate mint related desserts. We have compiled them for you all in one post, in case you were looking for something chocolatey and minty! This time of year I love making desserts like this to take to events or even wrap up to give to friends and neighbors. I hope you enjoy these delicious chocolate mint recipes.

These are perfect treats to give as Christmas gifts- so pretty and delicious. We put ours in mini muffin liners, which was a fun, festive way to present them.

Wow. My photography has clearly come a long way. These photos were taken back in April 2013- just look at the difference compared to the peppermint fudge pictures above- ha! Despite the picture, these brownies are delicious- an amazing twist on a basic brownie recipe.

What have you been baking (or cooking!) recently? We’d love to see your delicious creations! Upload a picture to Instagram and tag us @mydaughterandi and use the hashtag #mydaughterandiblog so we can take a look.
