My elliptical arrived today!!  I am in the middle of building it and I am SO excited!  One thing they didn’t mention…the first workout is actually putting it together…!!  This thing is HUGE!

It has been so cold around here lately that I haven’t been wanting to go outside at all and I just don’t have time for the gym so I’m bringing the gym to me.  I need to. Desperately.

It might have a little something to do with being a food blogger…and awesome recipes like these Peppermint Magic Bars.  So you probably know by now that I have a slight peppermint obsession right now.  You’re okay with that, right?  I have to say, it’s yielded some serious awesomeness so far :)

I knew like three months ago that I wanted to do a peppermint magic bar for Christmas season but the candy canes just didn’t work out.  Enter my favorite holiday ingredient – Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips.  Magic in a bag people.  Seriously.

The boys inhaled these magic bars and were begging for more.  You’re going to love how easy these are to make too!  I used white and semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe but you can substitute any flavors you’d like.  These magic bars will make a yummy addition to your holiday menu for sure!!

  9. I adore peppermint and I’m already dreading the end of the holiday season when all the mint chips go away. (So I’m stocking up now!! ;) These Magic Bars look like the perfect thing to use my mint chips on……..and then I will need an elliptical machine too!! (Might have to have my hubby put it together though, I’m not very mechanical!! :)

    Made these yesterday – and for some reason mine seem a little soggy?? Not sure what I did wrong but will try to make them again. Seems the condensed milk didn’t set up. Or are they supposed to be that way?? First time making magic bars. I want to make them again today!! Thanks for all your good recipes!!

  11. Way to buy an elliptical BEFORE the New Years! I love this festive new take on a classic cookie!
