You will love baking up a storm this Christmas with this recipe for Peppermint Brownie Cookies! Deliciously chewy and fudgy cookies full of cocoa flavors are drizzled with chocolate and topped with red and white candies! The perfect holiday treat!
Really, I never thought I’d put candies on cookies. On top of insanely CHEWY and FUDGY cookies that is. A chocolate lover’s dream come true.
Seriously. Chocolate. Lover’s. Dream. Come true. I did not all expect them to turn out like this, because wrapping my head around “brownie” and “cookie” at the same time just seemed impossible. But hooray: “Not as expected” actually means “even better” right here. Gooey, fudgy and super delicious like the best brownies ever had a baby with delicious chocolate cookies.
There’s times we just have to accept that kitchen accidents might just be that much better than our original plans. But uhm, when is chocolate ever an accident? That’s right, n to the ever.
As I told you yesterday (I know you’ve eagerly been waiting all night for this cookie recipe I hinted at) we spent some time this weekend with family (and the most beautiful dog ever who incidentally is also the hairiest dog ever), having a little pre-Christmas celebration because my in-laws will be back home for the holidays and my brother and sister in law are going away to visit her parents. We had some good food, good laughs and loads of cookies. And now it’s just one more week until Christmas! Can you believe it? I know, me neither.
I love, love, LOVE Christmas and the time leading up to it. Like, kid-like joy over this holiday right here.
And how special is this year?! Our first Christmas with our baby! Is it OK for me to go all crazy over this? Buy her a twenty-foot-tall Christmas tree and a teddy bear to match? Right, maybe not quite this bad but very-nearly-almost. And giving presents is just the BEST THING EVER. Really, I enjoy it more than getting presents. (Not saying that I don’t want any – Branimir, are you reading?)
