No. 8 - Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Everything
Aside from a messy breakup, December is the one time of the year when inhaling ungodly amounts of sugary, chocolaty peppermint treats is easily acceptable. Whether it’s the bitter darkness of fudge or the finest candy cane you crave, there is no escaping the urge for a few thousand calories of unexpected diabetes-inducing delight that your body hadn’t planned on receiving.
The holidays are short and the year has been long, friends, so treat yourself to some of those little homemade delicacies before the people who indulge all year long show up and pounce on those candies like kittens on a ball of yarn. You’ve earned it, and you can keep telling yourself that with every handful of chocolate dessert you shove into your mouth.
