Chocolate Peppermint Whoopee Cookie

On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge Whoopee Pie in a pear tree.

Yesterday my family bought our Christmas tree, put up our decorations and stockings and got into the spirit of the holidays.   Before becoming a parent, Mr. Bejelly and I would often skip decorations.  Heck, there were a couple of years where we would even go without a tree. I know, sad.   However, this year our house looks like the Grizwolds just set up camp for their next movie.

To celebrate the Christmas spirit, I’ve joined together with 10 bloggers to share Paleo treat recipes over the next 12 days.

12 days of Christmas

 I’m kicking it off with this Dark Chocolate Peppermint Whoopee pie.   There is just something about peppermint, chocolate and whipped cream that make me dream of snow covered streets and a warm fire in the hearth.  It also makes me think of Santa Claus and the wonder and miracle of the gift of small things.
