I’m headed to a cookie party tonight!
So excited to take these new Peppermint Brownie Cookies! I’ve actually been working on this recipe. It started out as a cookie sandwich I was going to try to make and man oh man that did not work well! It was soo much work and I’m just not into that!
This recipe uses a boxed brownie mix. Let me just be honest and say you need to use the Betty crocker mix. The two I tried were the Ghirardelli mix and the Betty Crocker mix – and the BC mix definitely won! Oh and it’s cheaper! Yippee for that 🙂
They took me about an hour to make just because I had one pan cooking 8 at a time and I needed to cook 24. If you had a larger sheet pan – they should only take you about 20 minutes.
What I love most about these cookies, especially for a Christmas party, is that they are super festive with peppermint on them and they are a bit different then the shortbread cookie, the chocolate chip cookie, or the gingerbread man. Oh and have I told you that Brownies are my favorite? Which mean – this recipe is right up my alley.
I have an IGTV episode on Instagram if you want to watch it 🙂 otherwise the recipe is below!
The simplest ingredients – all mixed together! no creaming of any ingredients, just throw and stir!
After you get it all mixed up – you will notice it’s super sticky!
This is where if you don’t have a cookie scoop, stop and go buy one! They are less than $10 and really need to be used for this recipe. I was able to git 8 to a pan, but as you can see my pan is small, you will cook these at 350 for 8 minutes. Please don’t overcook or they will not be good!
Once you take them out, take chocolate almond bark (or vanilla if that is your jam) and drizzle it on top. Note: for 24 cookies I only needed 1/4 of a large block of almond bark.
You see how I coated it pretty well? Don’t make it super thin or the peppermint won’t stick.
Crush up the peppermint using a ziplock bag and something hard to crush the candy canes! What I noticed is that the cookies are a lot prettier when you have red pieces on them… so I went back and added some red bits – but I think that just depends on what type of Candy Cane you grab, which means definitely don’t grab peppermint candies because they are super white.
If you make these Peppermint Brownie cookies, let me know below! Super excited about hearing about your cookie parties this season!!!Print
