Homemade brownies topped with a peppermint chip frosting is the way to go. Give these Peppermint Chip Brownies a try the next time you get a peppermint craving.
Yes, that is a homemade brownie. And yes, it is peppermint sitting on top of it.
I realize that it is only the beginning of November, but I have been craving peppermint like crazy lately. Don’t worry! I haven’t forgotten about Thanksgiving…there are still a few pumpkin treats that I need to share with you.
But today, indulge me for a minute! I made these brownies this week, and they were so good that I had to share them with you right away. Forget waiting until December…you need these today!!!
Please tell me that I am not the only one wanting to cram as much peppermint into my mouth as possible.
Have you seen the Andes peppermint crunch chips? I used them quite a bit last year, but for some reason this year I am going even crazier for them. I think every time I run into the store for something I have been grabbing another bag of them. At this rate I will be stocked for next year very soon.
It is also very possible that I might have been eating them by the handfuls while I was waiting for the brownies to bake. What? They are that good!
These homemade brownies bake up so rich and decadent. There is something about them that makes them pretty irresistible. But top them with a melted peppermint chip topping and they become down right dangerous.
My husband really isn’t a big sweets eater, but he ate quite a few of these brownies. He even took the pan over to the church to share with the staff, but I really think he just wanted them closer to his office.
I hope you are ready for me to go all peppermint crazy on you 🙂 It is almost that time of year, and now that I have started I know I won’t be able to stop. Each day I have been thinking up new things to make using my new favorite baking chips. Let’s ride this peppermint wave into the holidays!
Now excuse me while I go finish off the last brownie that I hid in our refrigerator 🙂 I need my peppermint fix for today!
