So can we talk about Christmas present wrapping? Am I the only terrible wrapper out there?! Please say I’m not. I’m bad. Like really bad. I can’t get a straight edge for the life of me and every other present I wrap looks like it’s been unwrapped and then rewrapped already. To all of my gift recipients: I promise you are the first person unwrapping your present! Let’s just hope I get a little better each year…
Another thing about present wrapping is that, holy cow, it is time consuming! I was not expecting to spend two whole nights just wrapping presents. You’d think my presents would be exquisitely wrapped considering how much time I spent on them, but I’m afraid that’s not the case. Oh well. It’s what’s on the inside that counts, right?
During the few seconds that I wasn’t wrapping presents in the past week, I was baking up a storm. These brownies are for sure my favorite treat to come out of my kitchen this holiday season. As a self-professed peppermint lover, I was all over these brownies. There are three layers of peppermint-y, chocolate-y deliciousness starting with a base layer of brownie with peppermint bark studded throughout, then a creamy peppermint layer, and finally all topped off with pure chocolate and crushed candy canes. These are for the true peppermint lovers and will not disappoint!
While these are somewhat time consuming considering you have to make the different layers, they are not difficult at all. I’d say the hardest part of all is sharing them with anyone else.
