Hey Y’all! It’s Joanna from Everyday Made Fresh, and I am back this month to share one of my favorite combinations, chocolate and mint – Frosted Peppermint Brownies! If you missed what I shared last month, you should really check it out since we are gearing up to serve another holiday meal in the next couple of weeks, and these Mini Dutch Apple Pies with Caramel Sauce are the perfect serving size and loved by all.
These Frosted Peppermint Brownies are made from a simple homemade mix, and topped with a cream cheese peppermint frosting that makes them delectable!
So about these delicious frosted peppermint brownies! I have been making these peppermint frosted brownies for years during the holiday months, and they are always a hit. One year when I was working as a secretary at a law firm I took these in for our annual Christmas party, and my co-workers raved about how tasty they were, and several ladies ask me for the recipe, so I know Y’all are going to love them.
If you don’t have the time to make these from scratch, which is really simple and doesn’t take up too much of your time, you can always use your favorite boxed brownie mix. I’ve done them both ways, and they always turn out perfect.
I’ve changed the recipe over the years from the hard peppermint candies to the soft peppermint candies. I find that it lends a slightly different flavor with a much smoother texture. If you can’t find the soft peppermint candies, then, by all means, the hard ones will work just fine. I made them that way for years.
If you love the combination of chocolate and mint, you should check out my recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. And tomorrow on my blog, Everyday Made Fresh I am going to be sharing my recipe for Chocolate Chip White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Cookies, made from my Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies.
More Christmas Treats!
