Aaaaaamazing (and Easy) Peppermint Brownies
Yep, you can admit it…there is a little satisfaction you feel every time you take a treat to a gathering and have everyone begging for the recipe! Here is one that definitely earns that ‘Gotta give me the recipe’ status, AND it is so easy you wont believe it
Fudgy Peppermint Brownies
1 package of your favorite Brownie mix (you know which ones are better than others…)
Vanilla Frosting (you can just use store-bought if you want…but home-made is ever so much better!)
peppermint essential oil
green food coloring (optional)
Make brownies according to package directions. Mix 3 drops of peppermint oil into the frosting. Frost cooled brownies.–If you want to make them ‘extra fancy’ you can melt chocolate chips and pour over top.
*Another short-cut is to just add 3 drops of peppermint oil to the brownie batter before baking…no frosting required for mint-chocolaty goodness
*…if you are taking these to an event, you might want to make a batch for yourself…so good you will need a whole pan back at home!
