People think peppermint is just a "holiday thing". But when something peppermint flavor tastes THIS good...I think it should be celebrated (and eaten in large quantities) year around. Let's start with the base...
The brownie portion of this magical dessert are the best fudgy brownies I have ever made. I like to call them "Lecker brownies" because I found the recipe when I was living in Germany. In German, the word "lecker" means delicious, and let me tell you...these bad boys are definitely LECKER.
So now that we know we have an amazing base, let's go to the topping - the thing that makes these brownies NEXT LEVEL. The frosting itself is a delightful Peppermint Cream Cheese - the peppermint extract gives the cream cheese a little something special, but it in no way overpowers the whole thing. When I was testing these brownies with my friends and family my favorite comment was..."I don't even like peppermint, and these are amazing. I have already had three!"
If that doesn't convince you to make these...I don't know what else will.
And then because texture is always a thing, I like to add a little crunch on top. I added some Andes Peppermint Crunch and my favorite Glimmer Crystals from Sweets Indeed. The crystals are beautiful and give just the right amount of crunch. I am obsessed with them.
So if you are ever looking for a super delicious impress the in-laws/your crush as work kind of brownie, this is it. Enjoy!
