I'm catching up on some posts during this snowy snow day, so it feels very appropriate to share one more peppermint treat leftover from the holidays. I've gotten in the habit of a 2:00 mug of tea and something sweet right before the big kids get home from school. (If there are no fresh treats around, the freezer is usually stocked with a few chocolate banana muffins as a backup.)
This cake made a delightful tea time accompaniment. The topping is Ghirardelli peppermint bark (half-off after Christmas sale!) Easy to make and looks lovely. Stay warm!
