Peppermint Brownies

Remember how I said I was publishing my last holiday treat?  Well, pretend that never happened.  See, a bunch of factors conspired against me and I had to do some more baking.  Factor #1: I sent nearly all of my Christmas goodies to my in-laws (I will be reunited with my cookies soon).  Factor #2: There’s just not enough chocolate in this house.  Seriously, what was I thinking?  Factor #3: My husband’s favorite baked good is brownies… from a box (is he an easy keeper, or what?).  Factor #4: I had a leftover bag of Candy Cane Kisses.  And lastly, Factor #5: My eyes glazed over when I found a recipe for Peppermint Brownies.

I modified this recipe a bit, using a box of brownies instead of homemade (someday I’ll try homemade, promise!) and adding chocolate chips instead of chopped up chocolate bars.  Both were time saving measures, because I needed to eat these ASAP…did I mention there was a lack of chocolate in house?  I hope you enjoy these as much as I am!

  1. Amy, they look delicious! A house is not a home without sufficient chocolate!

  2. I would love to eat these!

  3. I haven't been a good commenter lately, but seriously Amy I LOVE YOUR BLOG!! Your pictures are so awesome (what kind of camera do you have?), the recipes are interesting, and you make it seem like I could attempt them! I also love the header! :)

  4. I am so glad you are enjoying the blog! I just use a regular old Fujifilm Fine Pix S700. It sounds fancy, but it's not. It's just one we got at Best Buy a few years ago!
