Peppermint Party: Peppermint Nanaimo Bars on Candy Cane Sleds for Butter Is Best

Fill in the blank. You know you're a big deal when....

For me, this moment was "when I was asked by the Wisonsin Butter Board to come up with a holiday recipe for their blog". Like, OMG! I love butter!

Naturally, the choice was a holiday riff on my favorite Canadian treat, the Nanaimo Bar. 

If you've ever tried a Nanaimo bar, you know that they're a singular sensation of a treat: unforgivingly rich, unbelievably indulgent, and completely irresistible. That is to say, the perfect holiday treat!

And here's a version which embodies the festive flavors of the holiday season: the Peppermint Nanaimo Bar. It takes the classic bar and gives it a minty makeover, yielding a rich, creamy, buttery and refreshing treat that is the kind of confection that peppermint patties hope to be when they grow up.

Even sweeter? Serving them on adorable sleds made from popsicle sticks and candy canes--the perfect vehicle to deliver these rich treats!

These bars are truly the stuff that dreams (and New Year's resolutions) are made of--and a treat that you'll find hard to resist!

For the full post and recipe (including a tutorial on cute candy cane sleds!), visit the official Wisconsin Butter Board Blog at ButterIsBest.com! Oh, and you should follow them on Twitter too.

Dear Butter Lump,
My first thought when reading this post was of my four-year-old son suddenly looking up at me during Bible-study on Wed, night and whispering, "Mom, I think I love you more than butter!"... That's a big one, son, a really, really big one!

Insanity! This looks so delicious and absolutely holiday cookie exchange worthy.

I still haven't attempted baking a nanaimo bar! Perhaps I should rectify this by trying the Peppermint one, it does look so festive on the candy cane sled!
