I love a good spiral, and chocolate, and peppermint. hiding the buttercream frosting on the inside of a cake is a sneaky trick that I whole-heartedly embrace. A delightful surprise!
Sometimes you only want one little cookie. Sometimes you only want one little hard peppermint. I think this philosophy stretches across a lot of disciplines. Sometimes you only want one little cup of coffee, kiss from the dog, shot of tequila, chocolate on your pillow... I could go on and on.
How many tiny chocolate fudge cakes with peppermint icing do you think you could eat in one sitting? Two, three, even FOUR? I think I'd have a hard time with even one considering how adorable they are. I'm a sucker for the chocolate peppermint combo, but I think these little cakes could conquer me.
I know most of us here are a bit too young to have experienced a proper soda fountain chocolate malt with a paper straw, but the evocative Norman Rockwell-esque image endures and fills us with nostalgia nonetheless. If only I could drink a cupcake.
