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.
