Peppermint Mocha Brownies – Deliciously thick and fudgy rich chocolate brownies infused with peppermint and coffee, and studded with crushed candy canes!
Peppermint and chocolate. A combination of flavours that just can’t be beat, in my opinion. You won’t see me turn down a minty chocolate dessert, snack or drink.
So, today I bring you a festive mint chocolate recipe – Peppermint Mocha Brownies! Yep, I’ve added a hint coffee to the recipe just for you coffee lovers. 🙂
Ingredients for Peppermint Mocha Brownies:
- unsalted butter
- granulated sugar
- cocoa powder
- instant coffee granules
- peppermint extract
- large eggs
- plain/all-purpose flour
- chocolate chips
- candy canes (1 full-sized one, or 3 small ones)
These brownies are a quick and simple one-bowl recipe, that doesn’t require you to get your mixer out. Simply melt the butter in the microwave with the sugar, cocoa powder, coffee, and salt, stir together, then mix in the eggs one at a time.
Fold in the flour and chocolate chips, then stir in the peppermint extract. Pour into an 8×8-inch square baking pan, and bake for 30 – 35 minutes. Sprinkle with crushed candy cane and allow to cool completely before slicing. Done!
These brownies are incredibly thick and fudgy, and bursting with chocolate and peppermint flavour with a hint of coffee. You have GOT to try them this Christmas!
