Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites paired with a fluffy Peppermint Frosting and topped with a Peppermint Hershey Kiss!
Yesterday I had a couple hours to “waste” while my daughter was at swim practice. So of course, I chose to go to Target. The perfect place to spend time, wandering aimlessly.
It was actually pretty nice. I wandered up and down almost every aisle in the store. Talked with a few people I knew. Read the backs of movies. The inside covers of books. Grabbed a cup of Starbucks Peppermint Mocha. Filled my basket with several hundred dollars of goods. I was cozy. I was comfortable. I was relaxed. (there is a point to this story…bear with me!)
By the time I got outside, it was raining. Ran to the car, loaded it…and wondered why when I started my car my feet were kinda cold.
OMG guys, I realized for the past two hours I had been wandering the store in SLIPPERS. I drive a lot of carpools, and many times I grab my slippers or a pair of slides and run them where they need to be, never having to get out of the car.
This day, however, I did get out of the car. And walked around Target (it wasn’t walmart….) then ran to my car in the rain in slippers. Who does that?
Apparantly I do. No wonder I was so relaxed…I had slippers on my feet!!
It’s okay though. I’m a confident 40 yr old women who doesn’t care what people think of me. Much. Well, at least that’s what us old ladies who shop in our slippers are supposed to say!
When I got home, I had the leftovers of these brownies to make me feel better. That totally helped.
These brownies are my favorite, one bowl, from scratch recipe! Seriously, stop buying boxed mixes, these are so easy to whip up! Look at how dark and fudgy they are!
While they cooled I made a quick batch of peppermint buttercream frosting. I pressed a Candy cane kiss into each brownie and added some extra sprinkles for fun!
I also tried using the Mint Truffle Hershey Kiss chocolates. Guess what? Those were amazing with the dark chocolate brownies too!!
ENJOY. Happy Holidays. Wear shoes….
