Mint Brownies And A Very Special Day!
One year ago today I started on this amazing journey with all of you. I have had so much fun doing it too. My very first blog post was my "famous" macaroni and cheese that I always make for our family functions. It is so good that I have quite a few family members that have learned it and make it now too. So I knew that had to be my first blog post. I wanted everything to be just perfect. I worked on that post for a while to make sure it was right. I remember the excitement when I finally hit publish post. I was just so excited to have just one person to read my blog. I now have had over 20,000 pageviews since my first post and almost 900 following my facebook page. You have no idea just how exciting that is for little ole me! I have learned so much and grown so much since that first post.
These brownies could not be any easier than what I am going to share with you today. I have made these a few times and the first time was perfect, the second time, not so much!
Take out of the oven and take a spoon and spread the peppermint patties over the pan of brownies. Allow to cool and there you go. Once the candy hardens back up it creates a layer of goodness over these brownies. I told you these would be easy, didn't I? I decided to add a little minty color to these and melted a square of almond bark and added green gel food coloring. I then drizzled over the brownies. If you love mint these are for you.
1 box of brownie mix
eggs, oil and water called for on box of brownie mix
A good amount of peppermint patties
Mix brownie mix according to directions on the box. Bake in the oven a few minutes shy of when they will be done and remove from oven and line with peppermint patties. Place back in the oven for 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven and swirl the candy over the top. Allow to cool, enjoy.
Thank you all for joining me on this amazing journey. You have no idea just how much it means to me. I just love to cook and share with my family and that is exactly what you are to me, family. So pull up a chair, grab a glass of iced tea or a cup of coffee and stay for a while. The adventure is just beginning! Much love to you all.
