My Favorite Holiday Treat absolutely anything that combines chocolate and peppermint - like these Sandwiched Mini Mrs. Salmi's Cookies with Peppermint Buttercream.  That Buttercream Frosting is also great on Brownies, cakes, or in a big bowl and eaten with a spoon.  

Or these Meringues that hide a peppermint bark Hershey kiss inside.  
For Christmas presents in college, a friend and I made white chocolate peppermint bark for our friends.  I must have eaten 3 lbs. of the stuff myself.  
And yes, kids, you WILL get a stomachache from eating too much candy.

Chocolate/peppermint drinks are another favorite of mine like a Peppermint Mocha Latte or something I made this year Peppermint Hot White Chocolate.

Peppermint Hot White Chocolate

1/2 c. Powdered Milk
1/2 c. Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cornstarch or Arrowroot Powder
1 tsp. Powdered Vanilla
2 Candy Canes, 1 crumbled in food processor
4 Squares Vanilla Bean White Chocolate, crumbled in food processor

For mix:

Process all ingredients in a food processor until well mixed.

For drink:

Heat milk on the stove and put several heaping teaspoons of mix in milk (to taste).  Stir well until piping hot. Pour into mug and stir with the other candy cane.  Enjoy!
