Peppermint Brownie Bites


Cookie Week concludes with these Peppermint Brownie Bites. Maybe not so much a cookie, these bite-sized brownies topped with white chocolate peppermint frosting should definitely be part of every Christmas party dessert tray.

Since becoming a Mom, I'm all about shortcuts. Boxed brownie mix is my BFF. 

For realz.

Brownies are so easy to make. No mixer needed. Just a bowl and a wooden spoon. Plus, there's not that much to clean up afterwards. That's two things that are a plus for me. And how cute are little brownie bites? Right? Cute, I know. Just by using a mini muffin pan, you can create these little, pop-able, bite-sized brownies perfect for your Christmas party. 

The frosting is pretty awesome too. Incorporating white chocolate with the peppermint makes a wonderfully sweet and minty topping. Sprinkling some crushed up candy canes on top makes them festive. These do not disappoint.

 

Peppermint Brownie Bites
Recipe for topping from Good Housekeeping Christmas Cookies!

1 box of your favorite brownie mix + the ingredients needed to make the brownies

For the Frosting:
2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
4 ounces white chocolate, melted and cooled
Crushed candy canes or peppermint bits

Spray the cups of a mini muffin pan with Pam or other non-stick spray and set aside. 

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix brownies according to directions on the box and drop teaspoonfuls of batter into the wells of the mini muffin pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean. (Actually having a little batter on it doesn't hurt in my opinion since I think they are a bit better slightly under-baked). Remove from the muffin pan and set on wire rack to cool completely.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Whisk in the butter and peppermint extract and then whisk in the melted white chocolate until smooth. Frost each brownie bite with  the frosting and then sprinkle with peppermint candy bits or crushed candy canes. Store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature up to 3 days.

This recipe make around 48 brownie bites for me. May differ slightly for you.
