Peppermint Twist Recipe

Quick and easy recipe for Peppermint Twists breadsticks. Perfect recipe for Christmas morning breakfast. Made using Rhodes Bake-n-Serv frozen dough.

Hey there! It's Natalie, from The Creative Mom. I don't know about you guys, but Christmas morning breakfast is such a special time for my family. We usually eat right before we open presents, so the excitement and anticipation is at its peak. I always try to prepare something special, that we don't have every other day of the year, so my kids get really excited to see what I've made. Since I've usually been up all night making sure everything is picture perfect, I don't want to get up super early to get everything ready for breakfast, not to mention making a huge mess in the kitchen. So this year, we are going to have these yummy peppermint twists! They are the perfect mix of festive and easy! Not to mention absolutely DELICIOUS!Ingredients:

12 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
1/2 cup coarsely crushed peppermint candy or candy cane
Favorite Icing (yes, I used the canned stuff!)


Start by setting your Rhodes dinner rolls out to thaw on a greased surface. You want them still cold, so about 20-30 minutes is all. If you are in a hurry, place them in a warm (100 degree F) oven for about 10 minutes.

While your rolls are thawing, crush your peppermint candies or candy canes. I used my food processor, but you could also use a rolling pin.

 Once your rolls are thawed, roll each one out into long ropes. Take two ropes and twist them together, pinching the ends.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes, until tops are golden brown.

Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.

While the twists are still warm, spread icing on top. The icing should melt a little bit and run down the egdes of the breadsticks- yum!

Sprinkle crushed peppermint on top of the warm frosting.

 And you're finished! These are best served warm, right out of the oven. If you have picky eaters like I do, just skip the crushed peppermint, these are good with just warm icing!

 Pair your peppermint twists with some hot cocoa, and you are all set for Christmas morning breakfast! If you liked this recipe, you might like some of the other recipes and DIY ideas I have on my blog, The Creative Mom. I'd love it if you'd check it out!
