Today I’m grateful for: the quirky nature of the blogging world in which it is not only permissible, but generally encouraged to begin Christmas exactly 30 seconds after Halloween ends.
I used to fight it. I’d refuse to acknowledge Christmas was coming until after Thanksgiving. No music, no decorations, and no peppermint goodies. Those were the rules.
Even in past blogging years, I’ve put up a fight.
But this year, I’ve finally come to accept that that sort of thinking really benefits no one.
Because, really? Can peppermint actually come too soon??
So here I am, bells on and all, ready to bust out the peppermint and gingerbread.
Oh, but no eggnog over here. I really don’t do eggnog.
But this cake? I can do this cake.Oh. My. Gosh.
It’s essentially your typical BTS/Poke cake. Sweetened condensed milk, cool whip, and candy on top.
But instead of just sweetened condensed milk, it’s SCM whisked together with peppermint creamer. And instead of just a cool whip layer, try a layer of hot fudge sauce and oreos underneath.
And, of course, the candy on top isn’t just any candy. It’s Andes White Chocolate Peppermint bits and Oreos.
Merry Christmas, friends. Oh… and enjoy Thanksgiving too!
