These peppermint brownies are the bomb.  For real.

Oh my goodness, how I love white chocolate covered peppermint brownies.  Who knew?  I was craving peppermint again after making my peppermint chocolate chip cookies this past weekend, when I came across this recipe for white chocolate and peppermint brownies.  The kids and I were watching Elf and I wanted to find something quick to whip up.


Brownies are just inherently less complicated and quicker than cookies, so I opted for these white chocolate and peppermint brownies.  The brownie is so so rich and moist and includes 2 cups of chocolate chips.

Top it off with melted white chocolate that hardens after a few hours and you have quite a rich Christmas treat on your hands.  I had red and green candy canes sitting around, so decided to crumble those up for a topper.  So, so yummy.

As I’ve mentioned before (like yesterday), I just love peppermint during the holidays.  These white chocolate and peppermint brownies are a crowd pleaser.  They’re, surprisingly, not too sweet given that there are 4 cups of chocolate chips involved in the list of ingredients.
