Today I have the wrap up of the Minter projects. Between Nicole and I, we have 4 mint projects to share with you! We'll start of with Nicole's yummy treats!
The first one I did was peppermint whipped cream found here [I can't get the link to work...it keeps telling me there's a database error when I try to open anything on the realmomkitchen website. Hopefully it will start working again soon so we can all have the recipe!]. Mine was definitely not as pretty, but still very yummy! A winner!
The second one I did was peppermint popcorn bark. I forgot to put the peppermint extract in the melted almond bark, but I don't think it needed it. This stuff is SWEET by the way. Really good, but really sweet. I could only have a little bit at a time. And I'm glad I halved the recipe because even halved it still made a ton. Also a winner!
And the third one was these chocolate cupcakes with mint chocolate chip frosting. My husband rated these 7 or 8 out of 10, while I would probably put them at a 5 or a 6. They're not bad, they're just not my cup of tea. I halved this recipe too - and thank goodness because I only had 8 cupcake liners left! By the way, these come out greener in real life (doesn't show in the photo). An...EH.
Those look so yummy! Thank you Nicole! For my Minter project I tweaked a recipe I found on Pinterest. The original recipe is for confetti style cake batter truffles. I decided to make them Peppermint Cake Batter Truffles. MMMmmm!
You can find my tweaks and instructions here.
Check back on Monday for the January challenge and the start of the 2015 Pinstrosity posts!
