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.”
When I first saw this recipe in a local newspaper years ago, I couldn't wait to try it for our guests that very night. I knew it was a winner from the first bite. These rich fudgy brownies have been making friends merry ever since!
Try my decadent scones as a breakfast or brunch treat or a snack served with coffee and mint tea. They're so festive for the holidays, decked out in red and white peppermint candy. —Shelly Platten, Amherst, Wisconsin
My family enjoys the combination of chocolate and coconut. So I stirred coconut extract into brownie batter and added flaked coconut to the cream cheese filling. These fudgy bars are the tasty result!
