Everyone knows that chocolate and peppermint go so well together and what could be better than Peppermint Brownies? With peppermint in the batter itself and peppermint chips throughout, these brownies are just the right mix of chocolate and mint. They are the perfect compliment for a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Wouldn’t Santa love that? 😉
What You’ll Need:
1 1/2 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup of organic cane sugar
1 1/2 cups of cocoa
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of peppermint extract
2 sticks of butter, melted
1 – 10 ounce package of Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Whisk or sift together flour through baking powder. Add eggs, butter, peppermint and vanilla and mix until batter is fudgy. Add peppermint chips and stir until completely incorporated. Spread into a 13 X 9 inch pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray or greased with butter.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until brownies are done, but still fudgy.
Cool and cut into squares.
Notes: If you wanted you could add in nuts, but the peppermint really is enough on its own.
