Peppermint Bark Brownies

peppermint bark brownies

Maybe it’s just me,
but I feel like the Christmas season starts earlier and earlier each year.

It used to begin right after Thanksgiving.
You’d start seeing the holiday displays
Lights would go up
Christmas music would be on the radio.

Now, right after Halloween
Christmas shopping season is in full swing.
Last weekend the malls were already  blaring Christmas Music.

I’ll admit, it may be early, but
it did get me in the holiday mood.

So much so that I made
peppermint bark brownies.

I may not be ready to deck the halls
…I really enjoy celebrating Thanksgiving first.

That doesn’t mean I can’t make merry
with my sweets:)

Enjoy!

Peppermint Bark Brownies:
1 recipe of your favorite brownies
{baked}
1 bag of white chocolate chips
{10 oz}
crushed peppermint candies

as soon as the brownies come out of the oven
top with the chips
let them sit for about a minute,
and when you see they are melting,
smooth with a spatula {an offset spatula works the best}
top with the crushed candies

allow to cool in the fridge,
so that the chocolate will harden
before you cut them into squares
