With Christmas less than two weeks away I have been packing in as many peppermint flavored, red and green themed, twinkly light adorned activities as I can! This past weekend my friend had a Christmas party and I (naturally) volunteered to make dessert. I thought, what would be cuter than some Santa whoopie pies?
