So yesterday was the first day of our two week winter break from school activities, basketball and swimming practices. Hooray! Unfortunately, our break got off to a not so good start when I opened the door to our guest bedroom – the same room where Andy’s parents will be staying at the end of the week – and saw two waterfalls pouring from the ceiling thanks to our brutal weekend temperatures and a busted water pipe. After a few choice words, luckily out of ear shot from the menagerie, I went to work figuring out how to turn off the water to the house, scheduling a plumber and then a water restoration company to help save the carpet, mattress and walls. Did I mention the water was pouring directly onto the guest bed? The same one that my sister-in-law was sleeping in just two nights prior?
So with the water shut off for the entire house and nothing to do but wait for our afternoon appointment with the plumber, I decided to crank out another batch of Peppermint Bark Brownie Bites. I had made four dozen of these last week for two different school holiday parties. Baking tends to be my go-to when stressed, plus freshly baked goods for those making service calls never seem to hurt! These bite size holiday inspired treats earned rave reviews from the plumbers and water restoration technicians. I also sweetened their day with Magic Cookie Bar Cookies, straight from the cookie jar. They took such good care of us, it was the least I could do!
Based on my Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites, these one bowl Peppermint Bark Brownie Bites are an easy holiday inspired sweet that take just 15 minutes to prepare. Peppermint bark candies stud these deliciously fudgy, one bite chocolate brownie treats. Believe me, two dozen of these bite sized sweets disappear quickly!
I’m such a fan of peppermint flavored desserts around the holiday and love that I’ve added these Peppermint Bark Brownies Bites to my sweet treat lineup that has included these soft and chewy Mocha Peppermint Crunch Cookies and this fudgy Triple Chocolate Peppermint Skillet Cookie in previous years. These easy treats are the perfect last minute addition to your Christmas and New Year’s Eve dessert menu. If I can make them with a guest bedroom that boasts two waterfalls, I’m pretty sure you have no excuse but to head to the kitchen and get started.
You can never have enough peppermint recipes in your recipe box around the holidays! Be sure to give these delicious Skinny Peppermint Chocolate Chip Shakes, super easy Peppermint Oreo Bark and this picture perfect Chocolate and Peppermint Striped Delight a try.
