Peppermint Bark Brownies from Jen's Favorite CookiesI like flavors being seasonal, for the most party.  I like to save lemons for spring and summer, pumpkin for fall, and gingerbread for winter. But… there is an exception, and that is peppermint.

Why should peppermint be just for winter?  Why is Peppermint Bark only sold in December?  It’s a tragedy, if you ask me.  You can get peppermint gum anytime, why not peppermint baked goods?

I stocked up on the peppermint bark when I found it at the store during the after-Christmas clearance sale.  Maybe some people are tired of it by January, but not me.  Not even close.

Peppermint and I have some things in common, namely, that we are both close personal friends with chocolate.  Very close.  In fact, I think it’s fair to say, we both love chocolate.  And we’re both tired of cherries and strawberries monopolizing the Valentines Day dessert scene.  It’s time peppermint had it’s day.

I tweaked my basic One-Bowl Brownie recipe just a little, to keep these from being too gooey.

I broke up my peppermint bark (I used Ghirardelli brand) into little pieces, and sprinkled them strategically over the brownies just before they were done baking.  A few minutes in the oven gives the bark just enough time to melt and incorporate with the brownies.

  5. We’re staying in and having a lovely dinner with a dear friend on Valentine’s day.

  6. Eating lots of chocolate!

  7. You are too funny when you said peppermint should have its day and I agree. I never understood why red berry posts explode during Valentine’s Day (other then for being red). Aren’t they popular all year round? Whatevs!

  8. I plan on dinner at home, just me and my sweetie!

  9. a quiet dinner followed by a yummy decadent dessert with my hubby

  10. I plan to spend Valentines Day at home with my handsome and loving husband. We are having grilled shrimp and champagne. ..just the two of us.

  11. you have no idea how good those brownies look! i saw them and pinned them immediately so i can make them as soon as my little one sleeps…haha

  12. Girl, I agree! Mint is perfect all year round. Chocolate manufacturers take note! Give the people what they want! Your brownies look so gooey, chocolatey and decadent! I love how pretty the broken up peppermint bark looks on top.

  13. i am a huge fan of peppermint bark, so I know me and these brownies would get along very verrrry well!

  14. I’m not a huge peppermint fan in general, but I could totally go for some pumpkin right now ;-)
