Peppermint Petits-Fours

This is an elegant and easy dessert treat – you’ll impress your family and friends.

1 loaf pound cake (store-bought or homemade – try this one without the nutella or chocolate swirl)
¾ cup white chocolate chips
1 (16-ounce) can vanilla frosting
¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
Garnish: crushed striped peppermint candies or candy canes

Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. Cut pound cake in half lengthwise. Cut each half into eight pieces. In a small sauce pan, over low heat, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly. Add frosting and continue cooking until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in extract. Dip each piece of cake in white chocolate-icing mixture to cover. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet to set. Top with crushed candies.
