Hellllllllo! It’s me, Lily – again! Have you had a great Saturday so far? I have!! We went and got Donuts at Donut Heaven, which means today has been great. 😉 Guess what I’m doing in a little bit?? I have my first Piano Recital!! I’m playing “Silent Night.” I’m a little nervous since it’s my first one but my mom says not to worry about it because I’ll do just fine. 😉 I’m very excited about it, just like today’s recipe for Peppermint Brownies.
Everyone in my family LOVED these Peppermint Brownies! They are delicious! I love the chocolate and peppermint combo. If you like that combo too and your mouth is watering, then you should try them. These treats have a brownie base, cream cheese layer and delicious chocolate topping with peppermint pieces on top. It’s great for any holiday event and especially perfect for Christmas!
The candy cane pieces on top were my favorite!! My mom says not everyone likes that crunch of the candy canes, so if you don’t you can used Andes Crushed Peppermint Pieces – they’re softer. 😉
I really hope you like this recipe, like I did!
