One of my fave things about this time of year is all of the deliciously decadent treats that come with the holiday season.  No matter where you go – work, your local coffee shop, a holiday party – you’ll find festive foods infused with wintery and wonderful flavors.  And to me, no flavor combo is better than chocolate and peppermint. Enter Dean’s Peppermint Brownies

These brownies taste as good as they look, and to me are little slices of winter wonderland heaven. They’re super simple to make, which means Liam & Stella can get involved in the process, and the final product is out of this world. Chocolatey, minty, and all around delish. They’re the perfect holiday party crowd pleaser.
