Hello everyone!

The holidays are right around the corner and I am already starting to think about all of the delicious treats I want to prepare. I've started decorating my house since I look forward to that every year, and I love doing it but I also am looking forward to all of the holiday baking, sharing all of the amazing holiday memories from years past and making new ones. 

One of the things that I get excited to do every year, regardless of how busy things get, is baking! I love baking and coming up with a new creation that I hope people will love. There is nothing better than when your family requests their favorite recipes for the holidays and one of them happens to be you own! Best feeling ever! So this year I have already started working on a few to try out with the family this year! 

I love experimenting in the kitchen to see what I can impress my daughter with as a special treat to make over the holidays, as she always looks forward to seeing what I come up with. One of her favorite things she likes for me to bake is muffins, all different kinds, over the holiday break, so I decided to try something similar to bake for her.  I created something that I could also 'gift' to people over the holidays, as giving homemade baked gifts is one of my favorite things to do! So what recipe did I come up with you ask? Well, these adorable and amazingly delicious Peppermint Mocha Mini Bread Loaves!

That's right! On my last trip to Walmart, I grabbed a few supplies to make them and also the secret ingredient that made them oh sooooooo good:
International Delight® Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer!

Not only am I going to share the Peppermint Mocha Bread recipe with y'all today but I am also going to share a second recipe with you that is just as tasty! I mean these creamers are so amazing that I needed to give my second favorite flavor a try as well: Salted Caramel Mocha bread!

I mean do these look amazing or what? Trust me, they ARE delish and my daughter is so excited since we have a 'new' treat to bake over the holidays now! I love that this is a quick & easy recipe that everyone will love and enjoy baking with their loved ones as that IS what the holiday season is all about, in my opinion . . . spending time together and creating memories!

As you will see this recipe is so easy to make and you will find yourself indulging in these tasty creamers with your morning coffee, or when you are listening to Christmas music in the afternoon or in the evening as you are wrapping gifts and spending time with your kids baking. It will become a tradition that you will look forward to every year.

RECIPE for Peppermint Mocha Bread

Ingredients you will need: any chocolate bread/muffin mix + the ingredients for the mix, powdered sugar,
International Delight® Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer, baking chocolate bar, peppermints, mini loaf pan.

1. Prepare chocolate bread mix according to the directions on the package EXCEPT replace the water with
International Delight® Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

2. Pour batter evenly into prepared mini loaf pan and bake according to package suggestions or I did mine for about 12 minutes at 375 degrees.

3. Allow to cool completely. Prepare glaze while they cool.
GLAZE recipe:
(for every 6 mini loaves) - mix 1/2 cup of powdered sugar with 1 1/2 tbl. of International Delight® Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

4. Dip mini loaves into glaze and sprinkle crushed peppermints and chocolate shavings on top.

Just so you know, the glaze will harden up so you can store them, wrap them and stack, if needed. Also feel free to add a little more powdered sugar if your glaze is too thin.

Follow directions above exactly except use
International Delight® Salted Caramel Mocha Coffee Creamer and after dipping in the glaze, sprinkle with chocolate shavings, drizzle caramel and add a sprinkle of sea salt. YUM! ;)

BONUS ------> "Jingle All the Way" FREEBIE 

I thought it would be fun to design and hand letter a mini loaf wrap download for you, that way you can dress up these mini loaves when you may want to gift them to people. Or perhaps you want to use them to dress up your bread loaves during the holidays. What's so great about this Jingle All the Way wrap is that you can use it as a wrap OR cut it down and use in a card holder like I did in the photo below. Bonus for being able to use it TWO ways! ;) Hope you love it and feel free to download and use! ENJOY!

  1. OMG. This looks so good! I'm all about the peppermint part, my daughter would be all over the mocha lol. International Delight has been stepping up their game with their flavors!

  2. I'm a big fan of peppermint during this time of the year. I love making peppermint flavored treats and drinks. This mocha bread sounds and looks absolutely delicious. I can't wait to try this recipe this weekend.

  3. This is a great idea for neighbor gifts for the holidays! Peppermint mocha just screams Christmas.

  4. Now these look awesome! I have never heard of Peppermint Mocha Bread, but I am willing to give it a try. This would be great to eat with my coffee in the morning.

  5. This bread looks so delicious! And how cute are those free printables. It would make perfect teacher gifts. Thanks!

  6. Oh my goodness! These look amazing, just simply amazing. I have to be honest, my jaw dropped at your pictures! So delicious looking and your style is on point! Thanks for sharing this!

  7. Holy Cow! Peppermint Mocha Bread sounds and looks fantastic. I would have never thought to combine those flavors myself but now I feel like I must try this! It looks great and I love the background of your photos, very nice! The Wraps are super cute, too!

  8. I am making this as soon as I can. What a great recipe. I LOVE peppermint Mocha so seeing it being turned into a bread treat! YES please!! Could be dangerous. I love the presentation too. Great gift idea for coworkers.

  9. You take some mouth-watering photos! I also love sharing treats at Christmastime, so I'll remember your printables. So cute! How old was your daughter when she started cooking with you? My kids show an interest, but they are younger than 5, so I'm not sure if I want them in the kitchen yet. But I totally want their help in the future!

  10. Two of my favorite things. I am so trying this. I'm putting it on the list now.

  11. I wish I could say that I like peppermint, but I don't! Having said that, this bread looks so delicious, and so festive! I do love mocha so maybe I could omit or replace the peppermint?
