Two Bite Peppermint Brownies

No need to buy two bite brownies when you have this recipe! So chewy, chocolaty and oh so fudgy! With crushed candy canes, so they are perfect for Christmas!

Can we make December peppermint season? I think it should be all over everything, and in every dessert or breakfast ever. I have already made a peppermint mug cake earlier this week, and I am trying to come up with more peppermint themed recipes for the upcoming weeks. Maybe some peppermint pancakes, or an update on my peppermint hot chocolate?

The possibilities are endless!!

I made these brownies last week, and brought them to an ugly sweater themed Christmas party. They were a HUGE hit! I kept getting asked where I bought them from, which, if we are being completely honest, is one of my favorite compliments. If I can make something in my home that tastes like it is highly processed and tested millions of times to be shelf-worthy, then I am one happy camper.

But I have been trying to come up with more recipes where I can use my Mini Muffin Pan . My go-to recipe to use in my mini muffin pan are these whole wheat chocolate chip cookies, but I want to expand my horizons. And now that I have discovered that you can make two bite brownies in them? Well, this pan is going to be used WAY more now!

These brownies are the kind of brownies that have the perfect amount of chew, while still maintaining a firm outer shell, if you know what I mean. And the crushed candy canes add a delicious crunch while biting into them. They are basically Christmas in brownie form!
