A few weeks ago, I bought a bag of crushed peppermint to decorate gingerbread cookies. I had a bunch leftover and since then, whenever I see the bag, all I can think is how good they would taste in some sort of chocolatey bread. So I gathered my favorite ingredients and made it happen!
This bread turned out insanely soft, perfectly moist, with a rich chocolatey flavor and a hint of peppermint gooeyness. While it might be a little harder to find crushed peppermint now then it was a few weeks ago, I promise your efforts will be rewarded. In fact, if you can’t find it already crushed, buy peppermints and crush them yourself. You WANT to make this bread.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Let me know if you try it!
