1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
12 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
Garnish: crushed peppermint candies

1. Heat 3/4 cup cream in a heavy saucepan over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Remove from heat, and add chocolate, stirring until melted. Stir in peppermint extract; cool completely.

Savory Parmesan Bites

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1. Stir together softened cream cheese, 3/4 cup cheese, bell pepper, and parsley.
2. Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each can into 4 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Spread 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture on each rectangle. Roll up, starting at 1 short side, jelly-roll fashion. Cut each roll into 4 equal pieces, using a serrated knife. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle bites with remaining ¼ cup cheese.
3. Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
