Everybody loves brownies, right? Brownies are definitely a favorite in our home. With Christmas coming soon, I thought it would be fun to make brownie bites with a little twist…peppermint twist that is! These sweet little Peppermint Brownie Bites are sure to be a Holiday favorite! They are in the form of a cookie, which makes them easy to eat, and fun to make too! Huge thanks to The Hershey Company for making Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint candies!!! You will find the recipe below!
Brownie Bites right out of the oven.
I like to take a bottle stopper and make a little nest to hold the peppermint while the cookies are still warm.
Dust with a little confectioner’s sugar.
