January 8th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
No matter what time of year it is, we're fans of both chocolate and peppermint. When the holiday season rolls around, though, we simply cannot resist the urge to put the two together. The smooth richness of chocolate, combined with the cool zing of peppermint… these are flavors that were destined to shine as a couple. And shine they do in Trader Joe's Chocolate Peppermint Loaf Mix.
Our baking mixes exist to make your life less challenging and more delicious. Like its shelf-mates (including Gingerbread Baking Mix), Chocolate Peppermint Loaf Mix needs just a quick mix with a few staple ingredients (eggs, oil or butter, and water) and a stint in a 350º oven to become something delightful to behold and scrumptious to consume. It's a rich, dense chocolate cake studded with chocolate peppermint chunks, so you get intense chocolate flavor and just the right amount of peppermint. This one went through numerous tastings until we found exactly the right balance. Only then did we deem it worthy of our shelves… and your ovens.
We're selling each 21 ounce box of Chocolate Peppermint Loaf Mix for $3.99. We only have it during the holiday season, though, so if this is a favorite in your house, we suggest you stock up while there's stock with which to stock. You'll find it on our grocery shelves.
