The time is almost here...you may be short on time or money, or both. Here's an easy idea that won't break the bank. Resourcefulness is close to godliness. Read on, and see finished project at the end.
candy canes or peppermint
an empty container
a Christmas greeting card and a bow
Shhh.....don't tell anyone. I used regular old BOGO-from-the-store brownie mix. I took candy canes and rolled a mason jar over to crush them. After pulling brownies out of the oven (my favorite aromatherapy), I sprinkled them with the mint chips. I have the notion you could sprinkle peppermint on almost any dessert (except the fruity) for a festive taste. It would be fun on white or chocolate cupcakes.
