Peppermint Petit Cups & Christmas Giveaway




At Purple Chocolat Home, baking Christmas cookies in November
is just an exercise in practice!  No cookie baked in November
would ever make it to Christmas, unless it rolled under a counter
and was lost somewhere!!


These lucious petit peppermint lovelies are no
exception.  They were gone in a day, but at least
they were served for a dinner.

These are sooooo easy to make.

Peppermint Petit Cups Recipe

1 recipe for your favorite brownies - 9x13 pan size
1 C. Andies Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips (near
chocolate chips in your grocery store)
Hershey's White Chocolate Candy Cane Kisses

Make brownies according to recipe.  Stir in 1 C. Andes Peppermint
Crunch Baking Chips (these are the pink ones).  Place mini muffin
cups in mini muffin tin.  Fill using a teaspoon about 3/4 full.  Bake
in 350 degree oven for 12 minutes. 

Remove from oven.  Let cool completely.  Unwrap Kisses.  Place
one Kiss in each cup, pushing down a little.  Sprinkle with a
little powdered sugar.  Makes about 36.

Be sure and cover these tightly if you need to store them.
They can dry out quickly.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  25. My favorite part of the movie is when Susan gives the judge the dollar bill that has "in God we trust" circled on it.

  26. Jacqueline -- I immediately clicked on this link at FF and didn't realize it was yours. First of all I want to say that the photography on these little yummies was excellent. The red just pops. I need to try some of these, but I think I will wait a bit because like at your home, these would never make it until Christmas unless one rolled under the counter too. Joni

  27. These are sooo cute and I plan to make them at Christmas..Now...I MUST have a cute red and white dish like yours. Wonder where I might find one?

    Your giveaway is most generous. We don;t have a Macy's here..do they have an online store? If so, I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)
