‘Tis the season to be baking! Falalalala-lalalala! (Can you tell I have been listening to Christmas carols too?!) With cookie exchanges, parties and general treat-swapping fun around every corner there is always a new reason to be baking.
And I will add one more reason, these M&M’s Black & White Peppermint Brownies!
This holiday season Glad Holiday Edition products (available at Target) include seasonal recipes to inspire your festive baking. I picked up a pack of large tubs to hold all of my holiday sweets and couldn’t resist making the M&M’s Black & White Peppermint Brownies from the box packaging.
The not-so-secret ingredient in this recipe is the White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s. These special holiday M&Ms are also only available at Target, so while you are there grabbing your Glad containers grab a bag or two. You could make the recipe with out these, but it wouldn’t be the same. I am not even a huge white chocolate fan, but with the peppermint, oh boy they are good. And on top of the cookie bar, well these treats won’t make it through the weekend.
