A few weeks ago we had our annual ‘Drinks and Desserts’ holiday party where we get together with friends before the craziness of the holidays really begins. It was such a nice time, and I prepared 4 desserts, this one included. This recipe was a new one for me, but I was excited to try it because I love candy canes! I figured this would be a hit with the adults because of the richness of the dark chocolate and the bite of the peppermint, but it was also a hit with the kids.
These Dark Chocolate Peppermint Brownies are fairly easy to prepare, and they are like 100 times better the day after you make them. I don’t know why, but they turn even more fudgy and delicious. The recipe does pack a lot of peppermint punch, so if you want to downplay that, just use less extract than the recipe calls for. These are definitely a great seasonal treat, and I will be using this brownie recipe (sans the peppermint) for my go-to homemade brownie recipe from now on!
