With pumpkin everything clearing out and the holidays right around the corner, peppermint beverages paired with mocha or chocolate are making a comeback at places like Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. But what's more exciting? All the peppermint-themed treats perfect for a warm night in.

These treats encompass different flavors of peppermint and different levels of sweet, making great additions to ring in the holiday season.

Oreo Bark:

This chocolate-rich, peppermint bark spin takes the classic notes of Oreo flavor and the flavors of chocolate bark treats.

The candy cane bits make a pleasant color addition but don’t draw too much attention to the peppermint flavor. The bark is more of a chocolate forward treat, with fudgy aspects on the bottom layer.

This treat overall stands out with the unique combination of the sandwich cookie and the iconic crème filling that is lacking in the bar. As an added bonus, this makes for a great stocking stuffer for kids, as it is extremely colorful in presentation.

Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares Peppermint Bark:

This mature and elevated peppermint bark is a classic as far as chocolate for the holiday season goes.

With a stronger peppermint flavor than the Oreo Bark, this treat also has a smooth white chocolate aspect to it, making it a delicacy for any sweet tooth.

With a bite of peppermint flavor as well as a very sweet chocolate counterpart, this is a great addition to any dessert platter. Freeze the chocolate bar for a longer life to ensure year-round enjoyment.

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps in White Chocolate and Peppermint:

Covered pretzels may be a year-round treat, but add little bits of candy cane on top and you have yourself a winter wonderland in your mouth.

Sweet and salty is always a classic combination and never ceases to fail expectations. This crunchy treat, with just enough chocolate, is a thin spin on chocolate covered pretzels, making for a tasty treat to keep close by.

Smash Mellow Peppermint Chocolate Chip:

This dark chocolate and peppermint marshmallow is an extremely unique and perfect bite-sized addition to any hot chocolate.

This gluten-free treat makes a delectable and very minty new tradition for any sweets requiring marshmallows. I can only imagine making Rice Krispies Treats with them.

Pepperidge Farm Milano Slices Peppermint Cookies:

This wafer-like shortcake with a twist on peppermint bark makes a great treat on-the-go. The dark chocolate aspect is a plus, proving that there is a good balance of chocolate to shortcake ratio.

The candy cane pieces are a bit sweeter than the peppermint flavor I look for, but if you want more of that flavor, the cookie does have a counterpart as well with Milano also offering a Candy Cane option.

These treats can all be paired with hot chocolates, warm milk, or even popcorn to make this holiday season merry and bright.
