Cookie #6 in "The 12 Cookies of Christmas"

Brownies, Brownies, Brownies

When I was younger and we use to make up the cookies boxes as I mentioned a few blogs ago we always use to do mint brownies.  Mom would make a simple pan of brownies, but then frost them with her great homemade mint frosting. So, in true over the top fashion I have managed to jazz up the average brownie.  What you see above is a regular brownie mix but I added a bag of toffee bits to the mix.  When cooled they have been frosted with nutella.  Yum!!!

Other great ideas for brownies, that I have done for many school functions are:
Add a bag of mini M&M's to the mix and bake as normal.
Candy bar brownies.  Make brownies as usual,  When cool, take a decorator bag with chocolate frosting.  Make a dollop of frosting on each brownie then top with a piece of your favorite candy bar.  The kids go crazy for these.
Holiday options, the mint frosted brownies are great, or mix in peppermint M&M's, or top with a peppermint piece of ghiradelli chocolate.
We never eat plain brownies in this house!!!

Until next time.....
