It’s that time of the year! The time where family and friends come together to celebrate the holidays. One of my favorite childhood memories of the holidays was enjoy Buñuelos and hot chocolate. This holiday recipe is different than the traditional buñuelos because I made them peppermint flavor. These are great to give as gifts, enjoy at Las Posadas, or just to treat the family during the holidays! 

A few years ago, I finally learned to make homemade Buñuelos and with just a few ingredients + Spanish video by LaRecetaDeLaAbuelita. Since them, I’ve added a few ingredients to make them flavored and the result was amazing!!!
