I’m sharing a sweet treat that I found on an old card in my recipe box. I honestly don’t remember ever making it but I must have because there are notations on the card about the baking time. It was fun to see the layers come together and after the first bite I knew I would be making this again! One of the ingredients for the middle mint layer was Creme DeMenthe. I didn’t have any and looked at my grocery store to see if I could easily find some. They didn’t carry it so I figured out a substitution. I don’t want to list an ingredient that is a pain in the neck to get. So…in place of the Creme DeMenthe I used peppermint extract, a little green food coloring and milk. Worked like a charm!
If you happen to have some Creme DeMenthe hanging around I think it would be really good in the mint layer. The original recipe called for 2 T. Also, if you want the mint layer a darker green, simply add more food coloring. I didn’t have any candy canes but I think it would be yummy to crush some up and sprinkle on top of the frosting. Very festive indeed.
I’ll be back tomorrow night with my monthly printable group. I went all out this time. I printed, framed and hung my printables. I was actually shocked at the way the project all came together. I had serious doubts along the way! In fact, at one point I almost gave up and started over in a completely different direction. Now I’m glad I didn’t.
