Peppermint Whipped Cream-3 What kind of Christmas people are you?  What do you dooooooo with your life?  I need to know.  Talk to me.  Tell me everything.  Let’s just discuss whether you would rather watch Christmas movies or snow falling.  Do you sit in front of a fire on Christmas eve and eat ALL of the pigs in a blanket?  Do you have holiday traditions?  Where do you go, who do you see, do you cook or do you go out, do you open gifts on Christmas eve?  WHO ARE YOU?? TELL ME EVERYTHING. Peppermint Whipped Cream-4

Most importantly, do you like hot chocolate? Peppermint Whipped Cream-2

How about peppermint?  Do you like peppermint? Do you? Peppermint Whipped Cream

If not, we can’t be friends… well that escalated quickly.  (be nicer ashley!) FINE, we can be friends but like you’re bumped down half a rank.  (nicer ashleyyyy)  UGH, fine we’re friends I’ll get over it, whatever. Peppermint Whipped Cream-5

But if you don’t like peppermint you might want to relocate to a different page becauseeeeee I’m about to faceplant into a mug of peppermint whipped cream and hot chocolate.  nom. Peppermint Whipped Cream-6

Or maybe I’ll lick the bowl.  Or the whisk.  Let’s be honest I’m just going to eat spoonfuls of it straight AND drink the hot chocolate. Peppermint Whipped Cream-7

I’m one of those people who loves peppermint stuff all year round, but I respect that most people prefer it during the winter time.  Which just HAPPENS to be right now… don’t get all astrological on me and say “winter technically doesn’t start until Saturday,” just bear with me because we’re friends.

I also might have had too much fun making a mess.  Oops.

    LOVE Peppermint! Did you see the Peppermint Bark cake pops I made on my blog? I can’t remember! What a great idea! Hot coco and peppermint whip…mmmm….Can I get a hot tub and some snow falling with that too please? I have been debating whether or not to make my peppermint bark this year…I have some leftover candy canes and chocolate for a small batch. Decisions, Decisions! Great work Ashley!
