The National Day Calendar has announced probably one of my most favorite days in the whole wide world. It is Peppermint Patty Day!

The Peppermint Patty, since 1840 has been the treat for cool, delicious, covered in chocolate bliss. What could be better? I am so glad you asked! Recipes that include this wonderfully delectable treat!

Here are some wonderful ideas and recipes that I think will make you a lover of the all glorious Peppermint Patty!

1. Make your own Peppermint Patty! That's right, you can do it, and specialize it any way you like. The full recipe can be found

2. We found a variation of the recipe for a more candy, more traditional version...check it out.

3. A Patty Cake can be a very special way to celebrate. It makes you think of the "Patty Cake, Patty Cake Bakers Man....." I know, now it is stuck in your head right?

4. People in Colorado love their brownies, so lets spice it up with some peppermint!

Take some time to treat your friends, family, kids, neighbors on this amazing Peppermint Patty Day!
