These brownie bites are melt in your mouth delicious! If you like peppermint then these will not disappoint. You may consider reducing the peppermint candies by half if you'd prefer something more subtle but I think the recipe is perfect! Read More

Made no changes EXCEPT instead of plain chocolate Kisses. I used the chocolate peppermint truffle Kisses as well as the red and white peppermint ones... This is so easy and the cookies are delicious. Read More

I had a 22oz box of brownie mix with chocolate chunks I wanted to use up so I made these and they were a huge hit! I put the crushed peppermints in them along with about 1/2tsp peppermint extract and didn t put anything on top of them (but the powdered sugar) and they were FABULOUS! I ll definitely be making these again Read More

These are so delish and easy to make! I modified it a little. I bought the brownie mix that has chocolate chips not syrup so I added one more tablespoon water and oil to replace the syrup. I also did not put the crushed candy in there thought it would be too much peppermint. I m on my 5th batch bc everyone loves them! Makes about 20 cookies per batch. Read More
