Brownies are definitely a favorite. These Chocolate Peppermint Brownies are a chocolate lover’s dream with peppermint flavor.

Moist and fudgy, these brownies are made from scratch.

I threw some candy canes in a ziplock bag and use a meat mallet to crush them.

They make a great addition to your holiday baking.

You can wrap the brownies individually and freeze them until Christmas.
