This easy peppermint fudge brownies recipe is going to become your favorite go-to brownie. Chewy, fudgy, dark cocoa brownies topped with a peppermint cream cheese frosting and some crushed candy canes. It’s just soyummi!
This time of the year, I’m thankful for memories of family and food that I loved as a kid. For me, comfort food like my mom’s chunky applesauce and cookie recipes like these chocolate crinkles are a way for me to remember loved ones who are no longer in my life. This month, The Recipe Redux challenge is to take a favorite holiday recipe and give it a healthy makeover.
Perhaps unlike you, I grew up in a family that didn’t spend time in the kitchen baking treats. I’m not exactly sure why, but thankfully, my godmother loved to bake. Whenever I visited my godparents, there was usually a fresh batch of biscuits or a warm plate full of cookies or brownies around. Chocolate crinkle cookies were, and still are, one of my favorites, especially around the holidays. There’s something special about the chewy, chocolate loaded goodness that grabs my heart. The powdered sugar on my fingers and lips, falling down onto my clean shirt never bothers me one bit. It just makes the cookies taste that much better!
These aren’t your ordinary cookies, gang. This is a recipe for extreme chocolate peanut butter cookies. Fudgy, chewy, extra rich, with creamy peanut butter chips and a few extra chocolate chips tossed in for an absolutely amazing chocolate cookie eating experience. These cookies just might make your eyes roll into the back of your head!
People have called cookies like this “Death by Chocolate”. Hmm… I think that’s a bit overly dramatic though, don’t you? After all, I’ve never heard of anyone actually dying from overindulging in chocolate OR from eating cookies. I lead a rather sheltered life and don’t get out much, though, so what do I know? Maybe that title is appropriate. Sheesh. #CookieDrama
Hi! I'm Chef Becca, a formally trained culinary professional residing in northeastern Wisconsin. I create every day recipes with a common sense approach.
I believe that everyone deserves to eat healthy food, even if those on a budget. I provide healthy recipes with a tight budget in mind. My recipes use fresh ingredients with organics appearing when it’s cost-effective or when I have evidence that it’s really important. And you can be sure that I’ll share that evidence with you! As a trained chef, I primarily use from-scratch cooking techniques, with the occasional short cut recipe for those crazy busy days we all have!
