Creme De Menthe Cocoa Brownie Bites
Welcome to the Something Sweet blog hop. Today I am sharing my Creme De Menthe Cocoa Brownie Bites.
Hi Everyone, today I have joined up with some amazing bloggers to share some sweet treats for the holiday season with you all, organized by the super talented Leigh, at Little by Little Home. If you have just joined me here from Abbie at the Gal Down the Road, cheers we are delighted to have you here.
Are you into celebrating special calendar days throughout the year? You may have noticed that December 8th was National Brownie Day, now this is a date that can not really be passed up around here; since we all love a good brownie, on any day of the week. Along with our love for Hot Chocolate, which just happens to be the theme for our Kitchen Mini Christmas Trees this year on our Coffee Bar. Also just for reference, National Hot Chocolate Day is January 31st, so you will still have time to celebrate this recipe again! I say double dip! Now that you know where some of my inspiration for this super easy holiday treat recipe came from (which I am sure I am being cursed by a Chris Evans meme as we speak) LOL! I consider this to be one of my super easy, semi-homemade style recipes. You know, where you take help from pre-made box mixes to make your baked goods taste great and then add in the yummy extras to make them into something completely different. This recipe adds in one of my favorite holiday minty candies, Andes Mint candies to provide the Creme de Menthe flavoring and don’t forget the Marshmallows!
This reminds me of a sleigh ride in Colorado where the signature drink was hot cocoa spiked with Peppermint Schnapps for a little added warmth and holiday cheer!Keep in mind that you do not follow the box directions for this recipe. You will want to start by adding in 1 stick of of melted butter and 1 egg to your box brownie mix. I picked the Betty Crocker Supreme Fudge Box mix since it provides a fudge packet, which is perfect for drizzling on at the end. Then fold in 1 cup of chopped Andes candies and 1 cup of mini Marshmallows. If you are unsure what “fold in” means, it is when you lightly stir ingredients that you need to add to your mix. Meaning do not over stir or pulverize into your mixture, lol.Once all the ingredients are incorporated, use a small ice cream scoop to drop the dough balls into single serving mini bite size candy cups for baking. Bake as directed on the box, mine said 350 degrees for 15 minutes. When done, remove and allow to cool completely prior to adding marshmallow toppers and fudge drizzle.Honestly, this was a recipe I was working on for my Cookie Exchange treat this year, however with the rise of Covid again we decided to just make it an online virtual Cookie recipe swap instead.
