    I saw the hot chocolate cupcakes in your meal planner cookbook (which is THE.BEST.THING I’ve ever bought by the way!) and decided I am definitely trying them out this year for my family’s Christmas! Already have the ingredients bought 😁 and my sisters requested the Oreo
    Christmas Bark again as well. Happy weekend Shull family!

    Shay! I made 2 of these recipes for my daughter’s annual Christmas Lights sleepover. (She picks 3 friend to spend the night and my husband drives them around looking at lights. This year, the girls got to decorate their own travel mugs and we used those for hot chocolate. I always pack one treat for the car and have another waiting for them at home to eat while they watch an xmas movie. For the peppermint Rice Krispie treats, I swapped the Cocoa Krispies for regular, and then added chocolate chunks to the mixture right before I pressed it into the pan. I drizzled them with melted chocolate and then topped with red and green jimmies. They looked so pretty!

    I made a similar modification your Oreo peppermint ice cream pie- I folded in mint M + Ms and chocolate chunks. The peppermint ocean that I buy is smooth- no pieces of candy mixed in.

    Both were a big hit!!
