Peppermint Bark Brownies Are SO Much Better Than Holiday Cookies

Peppermint Bark is a classic confection used for holiday gifting. But when your loved ones open up their tins and see that you have made them peppermint bark brownies they are going to lose. their. MINDS!

This recipe can be as fancy or as simple as you want, depending on the type of brownies you make. We used our favorite homemade chocolate brownie recipe as the base of this dessert, but feel free to use brownie mix instead. Tbh, this peppermint white chocolate frosting would be amazing on pretty much anything. You could even sub out the brownies for cookies or even… brookies! The delicious options are endless.
