Peppermint Bark Brownie Bites

December 10 was the busiest day of our lives.  We had:  church party, swim meet, piano recital, work party, and a football banquet all on Saturday (luckily a basketball game was canceled) and in all different directions all over the city.  For all of this holiday merriment, I had to make: a main dish, salad, cookies for 35 people, a dessert, and some sort of brunch item. 
I saw several versions of peppermint bark brownies on pinterest, but I ran out 13 x 9 pans.  I actually like brownie bites better anyway, so I busted out my mini-muffin tins and made my favorite Holiday treat EVER! 

 I mixed up a box of brownies.  I added 1/4 cup crushed candy canes before baking.  Then I added about a Tb of batter to a greased muffin tin.  Bake @350 for 8 minutes.
Immediately, after removing them from the oven, drop 3-4 chocolate chips on each bite.  This will make them melt, and then spread the chocolate around with the back side of the spoon.  Lick spoon-it's yummy.  Let cool until chocolate is set.  Then melt either almond bark( I used 3 squares) or white chocolate in the microwave (15 seconds and then stir, repeat).  Add a tsp of melted white stuff on top of each bite.  Sprinkle with more crushed candy cane. Enjoy!!! Holiday Treat Perfection!

  7. These look so yummy!! I love chocolate and peppermint together. I made something very similar last week - you should check it out! Very similar, except I inserted a candy cane hershey kiss into each brownie bite. I love how you added crushed candy canes directly to the batter. I am going to try this next time! I found you at Crazy Sweet Tuesday - so glad I did!
