The holidays are upon us, and it's time to start acting like it. This is the most decadent, righteous chocolate creation, made all that much better with a healthy dose of peppermint--lots of minty extract and a whole load of candy canes. The triple chocolate comes from cocoa powder, dark chips, and ganache.
