Most of the baking I do is from scratch. However, there is one item that I make from a box (I know, shudders from you bakers out there). It's a very specific box. And I'm talking about brownies.
I've tried many brownie recipes but none of them are as yummy as these Ghirardelli brownies. They are moist and chewy with a crusty layer on the outside. I buy the big box from Costco. I prettied them up with some peppermint flavored frosting and crushed candy canes. They turned out very festive!
See what I mean? Crusty outside, moist and chewy inside. And, can you say triple chocolate? You chocolate lovers out there know what I'm talking about.
Cool brownies completely before adding this:
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 Tbps milk
3/4 tsp peppermint extract
green food coloring
Crushed peppermint candy canes
Note: I doubled the frosting recipe for a 9x13 pan of brownies.
When you put it all together you get a very festive, rich and sweet treat for those holiday parties or to enjoy just because.
Hubby gave them a double thumbs up! Works for me!
Til next time ~ find your joy!
