Brownies for the Church Office

We have been members at our church for just over five years since we moved back to our home state. We love these people, they do a great job at running the joint- from the pastors to the receptionists.

On my way to a meeting this morning I wanted to say thanks to everyone in the parish office and brought them by a batch of brownies. I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while-, and I love these brownies. I hope that by cutting them into little squares it will be less intimidating to everyone who made New Year’s resolutions to try and eat better…

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Mocha Brownies- (TIP: Did you know, if you cut your brownies with a PLASTIC knife, they wont shred, or get gummed up on the knife? For real! I didn’t believe it until I tried it, side by side with a metal knife.)

To one box (or home made batch) of your favorite brownie mix, add these extra ingredients: 1 Tablespoon of instant coffee dissolved in the water that your recipe calls for; 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla; 1 cup chocolate chips… or more. Go to town if you are a chocoholic.

Mix these ingredients into the brownie batter, then pour into your baking dish.

Before placing into oven and baking as directed, smash up about 10-15 starlight mints or 4 big candy canes, sprinkle crushed peppermint candy over batter in pan.

Bake and enjoy!! The peppermints melt into a glaze on top and are delicious! This tastes a lot like a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha to me.
