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!
