Comments Sue G. of Columbus, Wisconsin, “Around Christmas, I make a few alternative treats to help the cookies last longer. I give my brownies a holiday taste by stirring in crushed peppermint candy. We love them.”
FIGURE on these sweet treats winning lots of smiles! The graceful goodies are perfect for a wintertime birthday bash, a school classroom or anytime you'd like to surprise your family. To create the confections, Crafting Traditions' cooks put a sporty spin on Kathy's rich brownie recipe. They cut out skate shapes, dipped them in chocolate and attached candy-cane blades. Pair mugs of cocoa with the desserts or serve them all by themselves. Folks will jump at the chance to eat them!
Although I enjoy sweets, other recipes have failed me (I'm a beginning baker). But not this one! It's easy, and the ingredients are always on hand. Even my boyfriend, who doesn't like most sweets, can't pass these brownies.
A jar of this attractive layered mix produces a yummy batch of fudgy brownies that are dressed up with chocolate chips and M&M’s. “If you need a quick gift for a neighbor or teacher, this fills the spot—deliciously!” assures Joan Hohwald of Lodi, New York.
