Sometimes a girl just has to have her chocolate. You know? Anything in moderation is ok, right? Well, to control the eating of these brownies, I did share them with my neighbor. Let me tell you, they definitely are yummylicious!
Sometime before the Chrismas holidays I came across a Holiday Cookies magazine from America’s Test Kitchen. That is where the recipe for the Eggnog Creams came from that I shared with our cookie exchange this year. I was looking through the book the other night and I decided, these don’t have to just be for the holidays! Every single cookie in this book looks awesome and it is my plan to make every single one of them…..over time of course! Since I had some leftover peppermint patty candy from Christmas I decided to start with the Peppermint Surprise Brownie Bites. I have made a brownie similar to this before – with the peppermint patties in them, but they were heavy and dense and made me not really care for them. These brownies are perfect for the peppermint patty! They are light but fudgy and have a top layer that will peel right off (if you want it to!). Oh so yummy. Good thing I sent over half the batch to the neighbors house!
