Peppermint Bark Brownies

December 6, 2012

Ironically, I’m not a huge fan of minty stuff. But at Christmas, somehow all rules are subject to change. Remember THIS peppermint bark? Or THIS peppermint ice-cream?

Tell me to stop with the peppermint, already. Ok don’t. Because I probably won’t listen. Then you’ll be bothered and we might exchange a word or five (oh dear). And then we’ll both end up on Santa’s Naughty List. Sad. We’re friends, remember?

So obviously, on December 5th when the urge to bake brownies sets in, they can’t be regular ‘ole brownies you’d eat January – November. No, in December we make them peppermint. Oh and not just peppermint… add another layer of ganache and we call it bark! Meep!

    So cute! Where did you find the stripe paper to wrap them in?

    I was fortunate enough to be a taste tester for this recipe and OMG was it yummy!!
    I too am a lover of peppermint, but only this time of year.

    I just made these yesterday and they were soooooooo DELISH!!! It’s funny because I was just at World Market two weeks ago and I bought the box mix of peppermint brownies.. To which I might add… so not as good as your recipe! I also got the green stripe and red & white polka dots paper to add to my gift baskets… Awwhhh… I must say what great taste you have.. haha.. Pun intended! 🙂 Keep up the great work.. So inspirational! <3
