Christmas Wrap-Up: A Traditional Peppermint Pig

Until this morning I lived in a world of oblivion, unaware of the century-old Christmas tradition of passing a peppermint pig candy around the table and chipping off pieces with a hammer. This is entirely new to me, somewhat disturbing, but I want to try it! Today's Gothamist blog not only explains the tradition but includes a video tutorial so that you can create your very own Peppermint Pig candy for next Christmas' festivities- an activity the whole family can join in!

After reading this blog entry, my astute mother also sent along a link to Saratoga Sweets where you can not only buy the Peppermint Pigs but Peppermint Pig Poop, as well! Oh my! (Click here to order)

  1. Sorry, but hammers and peppermint pigs = a gazillion ants in the aftermath. This is fun?
