Oh people. We are completely buried in snow over here. Two more feet fell yesterday and overnight. Three to four inches per hour at times! Personally, I'm happy about this. To me, if it's winter, let it snow snow snow! But then again I have nowhere to be so that's easy for me to say... I do hope everyone that needs to be out and about takes it slow and easy. It is not a day for rushing.
Yesterday afternoon I felt the usual snow day pull to the kitchen. The warmth, the fragrance, the smiles on my girl and my guy. Love it all.
It occured to me I should do something with those last three candy canes I've been moving around my pantry since Christmas, I really wanted to use them up and not find them (like usual) still sitting on the shelf come Easter, as I'm putting away the chocolate bunnies.
I put google to use and discovered this recipe. Please oh please make this recipe. The candy canes melt when baking and when the cookies cool a minty chewiness remains along with the melted chocolate chips. You will be so happy! The only thing I thought was strange was it didn't call for candy canes, but I swear I can see them in the recipe photo (and my motivating ingredient anyway). So just add some (slightly) crushed candy canes, a few should do it. Such a delightful snow day treat. Everyone in your house will be smiling, I promise.
They're calling for another big storm early next week. Hmm... what to make, what to make...?
