Around this time of year, it seems like every event you attend there’s food in every corner. Traditionally, I host a holiday party for my nearest and dearest, and I know I too make sure every surface of my kitchen is covered in delectable food, snacks or drinks.
I LOVE IT.
And though this is the case, to be honest my absolute favourite kinds of get-togethers are wine & cheese parties. Where the focus is on good company, great bubbly and cheese that oozes with class. Of course, even when hosting a wine and cheese … I need to have a least a couple of sweet options. Jams help to add little notes of sweetness … but chocolate, seriously how can you go wrong with chocolate.
And like the classic pairing of wine & cheese, it’s only natural that I added a little peppermint to this chocolate concoction – hello, holiday season!!
Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Pepperoni
¾ cups white chocolate crushed pretzels
1 can of condensed milk
2 cups of cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of evaporated milk
1 cup of unsalted butter, melted
1 cup of crushed candy canes
In a large bowl, mix condensed milk, 2 cups of cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of milk and the melted butter.
Add the crushed pretzels and candy canes.
Spread the mixture in a parchment paper and roll it to make a salami shape.
Enclose edged of parchment paper by twisting. Allow to chill 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator and sprinkle with icing sugar.
Place back onto a large sheet of plastic, twisting the edges like you did before.
Allow to chill, until you’re ready to serve.
Throw on your pumps – a cute dress and add a little sparkle to your conversations – you’re about to have a pish-posh holiday soiree!!
… or you know, track pants, comfy slippers and crackers pair perfectly well with this pepperoni too!!
