Peppermint Cookie Brownies – rich, dark and decadent.
Sign me up!
Alright folks… let’s keep the brownie kick alive for a little virtual bake day today with Gold Medal Flour. My holiday baking streak is going strong and there’s no turning back now.
Today I made peppermint cookie brownies. They are insane to say the least. My mom was having a big ceramic/art open house this past weekend and I thought these would be the ideal treat for her to serve to all her friends. That’s one of my favorite parts of the holidays – baking for others! Homemade holiday gifts are my go-to for neighbors and friends, so there are the perfect way to show them all a little love.
Side note – if you haven’t taken a peek at all her beautiful ceramics, you should probably check them out!! They are gorgeous. We had a big time cyber monday sale a few days ago… and there are still a few fab items up for grabs!
Anyways… back to the brownies! These babies are laced with peppermint oreo cookies, a healthy dose of cocoa powder and Gold Medal unbleached all-purpose flour. I’m hooked. It’s the most perfect chocolate-y bite that ever existed. They remind me of my grandmas brownies that she makes us anytime we go visit in Chicago. Except she dusts hers with powdered sugar – she’s fancy like that!
