I LOVE Peppermint…do you? This time of year I crave it on everything. So it totally makes sense to whip up batches of this Peppermint Buttercream Frosting Recipe. It is so good! All I do is just add some Peppermint Essential Oil (food grade) and crushed candy canes and you have one tasty frosting recipe.

We love to frost chocolate cookiesbrownies, our favorite Soft Sugar Cookies that are cut into holiday shapes, or a cake!

1 tsp. peppermint extract

3 Tbsp half and half

  3. Add the half and half and another cup of powdered sugar and mix together.
  4. Add the last ½ cup of powdered sugar and mix till smooth.
