Chocolate Peppermint Week is closing out with more recipes than you ever expected! Bonus, they’re all from registered dietitians. I don’t say that because you need to make all of your holiday treats “more healthy”, but because dietitians have the best taste in food!

Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Popcorn

When I first started dating Tim back in college, he was so excited to take me to Peterbrook Chocolatier when I took my first trip to his hometown of Jacksonville, FL. Most of their stuff is amazing, but their chocolate covered popcorn became a fave of my family real quick, too. {Click if you missed day 1 and 2 of chocolate peppermint week to see the baked oatmeal and brownie Christmas trees}

Black Bean Peppermint Brownie Trees

We’re here for day 2 of chocolate peppermint week (check out day 1’s baked oatmeal)! This recipe, I’ll admit, was a bit of a tough one to perfect, but I am now SO happy with how it came out. Brownies are one of those things that sometimes I will just crave in the winter – typically I want a warm gooey brownie, but I made an exception on these and eat them at room temp so we can enjoy the frosting and toppings without them running off!

Sweet Potato Snickerdoodles

I’ll be the first to admit, I did not grow up much of a snickerdoodle fan. Chocolate chip cookies will always be my #1, but with snickerdoodle being Tim’s favorite, I’ve found myself making them and actually enjoying them, too!

Small Batch Honey Apple Crisp

This post is a quick one. I teased this apple crisp on Instagram and had so many messages asking for the recipe that I decided to get it up right away! It’s meant to be smaller than most recipes since we live in a house with only two adults, so if you need, feel free to double and cook in a larger baking dish than recommended.

Sprouted Grain Pizza and Calzone Dough

When it’s football season, whether you love watching the game or not, you’re bound to be around someone who does and wind up at a game watch or tailgate. Chances are, at those functions, you’ll be running into some beer, and what goes better with beer than pizza? Confession: I prefer red wine with pizza, but I bet some of you might choose a calzone over a pizza if it was easy to make. Your kids might think it’s pretty fun and yummy, too.

What if I told you it was easier than you think? I introduce the dough that makes the perfect personal pizza and calzones…and dessert pizza. One dough to make everyone happy! Continue reading
