Candy Cane BrowniesWhat’s one of the best things about the holiday season? Candy Canes. All of a sudden bowls of candy canes are in the office where you work. Go to the bank and they are greeting you with candy cane presents. They come in many different flavors now, but my favorite are still the originals. You can keep the tropical and berry flavored ones and I’ll take the traditional peppermint. Mint and chocolate are one of my favorite combinations. My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip and my favorite candy since I was in high school are Andes’ Creme de Menthe – mint filling sandwiched between two pieces of chocolate. So I decided to try this perfect marriage of flavors in a brownie. If you like mint and chocolate together as much as I, you are going to love these fudge Candy Cane Brownies.

I ground the candy canes using a coffee/spice grinder. However, if you prefer to leave them more coarse, you can just pulse them in a food processor.

These brownies are super soft and fudgy with that perfect marriage of chocolate and mint…who can resist?
