Chocolate Brownies with Peppermint White Chocolate Frosting

Yeah. With a name like that it’s all about the frosting. Don’t get me wrong, the brownies are awesome too! But come on, you mix white chocolate, with buttercream frosting, and peppermint? Yeah, it kinda takes over the dessert.

In a good way.

How pretty would these be on your next holiday dessert table? I love bite sized treats.
