Chocolate Covered Peppermint Blondies
Are you tired of all those Christmas cookies floating around the web? Want to try something else? I got you covered. These amazing peppermint blondies will blow your socks off in terms of flavor, texture, and presentation.
I love the fact that they are chewy, with a soft chocolate top, and then crunchy for the candy canes. Since the candies are sprinkled in, each bite will have a different taste. Kind of surprising.
These Holidays I am in the kitchen baking with my girls. This recipe is perfect since they can help me mix, spread, top and sprinkle their favorite candies.
One of my girls loves to throw everything in randomly, while the other is more calculating and likes creating patterns within the blondies. What a great way to show their different personalities while we bond.
Not a fan or peppermint? Simply omit from the recipe and top with M&M’s and cookies n’ cream candy. You can actually make theseÂ Chocolate Covered Peppermint Blondies all year round, simply use different colors and flavorings.
Sometimes brownies get all the attention, but to me, a blondie has much more depth of flavor and chewiness due to the use of brown sugar in the batter. I added tons of mini chocolate chips in mine to get hints of chocolate in every bite.
