While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
Get the sensation! February 11 is National Peppermint Patty Day.
Introduced in York, Pennsylvania, by Henry C. Kessler, the peppermint patties that we know and love today have been on the market since the 1940s. Feeling really fresh? Try this brownie recipe from Real Simple: it combines our favorite chocolate treat with actual peppermint patties.
We have a feeling that certain freckled-face Peanuts character would approve.
