Peppermint Patty Brownie Bites is just the treat you need at the end of a long day. Chocolate and mint can make anything better.
Mint chocolate is a tough combo to resist around here. Mint chocolate ice cream doesn’t stand a chance in my freezer – I have to resist buying it or it’s gone in days. I keep fun sized boxes of Junior Mints in my diaper bag for bribes. And when I don’t need them to bribe the toddler, they’re the perfect snack while waiting in the school car line.
Treats are necessary for the car line. It’s basically one of the worst places on earth. Sometimes I sit there thinking that I can’t believe I have five hundred million more years of school car line. It’s honestly the bane of my existence. It’s also smack dab at the tail end of my daughter’s nap time, so there are days I have to wake her up so we can go sit in the car and wait at the school.
A tired, cranky toddler plus school car line is a special kind of place. And by special, I mean not special at all.
Two of my FAVORITE treats for when I’ve just had a DAY is either brownies or frozen peppermint patty, which I hide in the freezer behind a bag of corn. The boys never mess with frozen corn. It needs cooked in a pan and doesn’t have the words “Pizza Rolls” on the package, so my precious peppermint patties are safe nestled behind it.
I decided to combine two of my favorite treats to make these peppermint patty brownies. Dark chocolate brownie bites are topped with peppermint patty filling and then dipped in chocolate shell.
They’re pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself. Perfect for the mint chocolate lover in your life!
