|Peppermint Bark from BeurreDeMonBiscuit|
I've experimented by mixing crushed starlight mints into double chocolate cookies and, more recently, brownies. But it leaves the candy component inextricably stuck to the pan (metal or glass) so my next experiment is to try sprinkling the candy on top. I watched Paula Deen make these cookies yesterday, which are baked cookies dipped in melted white chocolate and then crushed starlight mints. Mmm...
In the meantime I am thoroughly enjoying these "Rippin' Good" peppermint Oreos (found at Martins/Giant but I hear Trader Joe's makes their own as well).
*When we were in Boulder in 2003 we toured the Celestial Seasonings plant where they have to keep the peppermint in a separate room so it doesn't permeate the other ingredients. We stuck our heads in and the smell was enough to curl my nosehairs.
