{Recipe} Peppermint Brownie Bites

How are you going with your Christmas prep? As of yesterday I'm all ready to go and we are so looking forward to it. An update on the house reno's/change arounds etc.- DONE! Everyone is settled into their new designated space and loving it. My new sewing room is finished with the exception of a few things that are under the tree, and today is the first day in weeks I'm not in my daggy, grubby paint clothes :) It's been an exhausting month and we have worked day and night to finish everything before Christmas, so now we can just sit back and enjoy the festive season!
I have a yummy recipe for you today and I think we can all agree that everything is perfect in miniature. I made a batch of these for Cohen's class Christmas party and they were such a hit that I thought I would share them with you. Here's my Peppermint Brownie Bites:

I'm the only family member who's not a huge peppermint fan but I do love these brownie bites. There's just enough peppermint flavour in the buttercream to appeal to my taste buds and teamed with those delicious, gooey brownies its a perfect match.
They not only taste delicious but they look so pretty and they are a simple and yummy way to enjoy a traditional Christmas flavour.

Cooked in those cute little cupcake liners the recipe yields about 24 Brownie Bites, so they are great for family gatherings or for those times when you need to send a share plate to work or school.
You could get all creative and sprinkle them with crushed candy canes or peppermints but I like them just like this and I think they have the right amount of flavour. Plus I was seriously tired when I made this batch and that was as creative as I was going to get :)

My Brownie recipe is quite basic but you could add some chocolate chips or walnuts to make them special. Simple recipes are often the best because you can play around with them and make them your own, adding all the extra touches that you enjoy.
Keep this recipe in your files and flavour your buttercream to suit different occasions. They are also yummy with orange buttercream and they are divine with a raspberry buttercream as well which is perfect for Valentine's day :)

I prefer my Brownies fudgy so I cook these for around 12-14 minutes but everyone's oven is different so keep a close eye on them while they are cooking. You don't want to overcook them and you want those centres still slightly gooey and delicious. Give them a little longer if you prefer a more cake textured brownie.

I hope you enjoy my Peppermint Brownie Bites. A plateful of these will look lovely on your Christmas table, satisfying both chocolate and peppermint lovers alike. Give them a try and let me know what you think :)
I'm looking forward to actually sewing later today but I don't want to mess up my new room, its all so clean and tidy :) I might just sit in it.....and admire it for just a little bit longer :)

Happy baking :)
