Mmmm MInty

I have to say I am NOT the best baker. I think I may have said it before. I have even ruined brownies out of the box. I have definitely cried while trying to use a mixer or deal with dough of any kind! BUT….I am getting better! This holiday season I tried a couple of new baked goods, on my own! One success I had was a recipe I found through Pinterest (love it!). Peppermint Crumble bars…Okay I am not the biggest peppermint fan but I used milk chocolate peppermint bark instead of just white chocolate and I think they are much better that way. But this recipe was not too hard and to my surprise very good!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
  2. Use a pastry cutter or a fork to cut the butter, sugar, and flour together until crumbly.
  3. Press a little more than half of the crumble mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 lined baking dish.
  4. In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix 1 cup of the white chocolate peppermint candy and the sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Pour over the crumb crust in the dish.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining crumble and white chocolate peppermint candy evenly over top.
