Welcome to our Blogger Christmas Cookie Exchange, hosted by Camila of Effortless Style ! I’ve joined up with an amazing group of girls today, to bring you our fabulous holiday recipes you’ll be sure to love and want add to your holiday baking. I’m sharing the easiest recipe imaginable…literally it does not get easier than this! Three ingredients and 30 minutes is all you need to make these mouthwatering Dark Chocolate Peppermint Chow Mein Clusters. I promise, you will keep this one as a standard every year. My mother always made these growing up, sans peppermint, and they were always a favorite in our home. When my daughter, Sydney, and I decided to try making them ourselves, we added the peppermint for a little twist – and quite a delectable twist, I have to say! They’re dangerous, to be honest, these are treats I cannot resist. If you love anything chocolate mint flavored, these are for you! The best part, is that they’re super simple, quick to make, and no-bake. Your kids can do these on their own (with a little supervision at the stove if they’re younger). Scroll down for the full recipe and also to visit the other bloggers in our exchange!
