Let me introduce you to my new favorite truffles...these little fudge peppermint brownie bites are dipped in milk or white chocolate and garnished with crushed peppermint candy canes. It's not too late to add these sweet treats to your Christmas and New Year's dessert trays. Or pack them up in a cute little tin box and surprise your neighbors and friends.
Peppermint Brownie Truffles
1 box brownie mix plus ingredients to make, per package instructions
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 cup chocolate fudge frosting
Wilton white or milk chocolate melts or Almond Bark
Crushed peppermint candy canes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Mix brownie batter per package instructions. Pour into prepared pan and bake per package instructions. Let cool completely. Use a fork to break up the baked brownies.
In a large bowl, use a large spoon to mix together the brownies, peppermint extract, and frosting. You can refrigerate the mixture to make forming the brownie balls easier. Form brownie truffles (2 tsp) and place on wax paper lined sheet tray. Place in freezer for at least 1 hour to set up.
Melt chocolate melts or almond bark in microwave safe bowl. Dip each brownie truffle in melted chocolate, use a spoon to remove, place back on sheet tray, and garnish with crushed candy canes right away (chocolate firms up quickly on the frozen brownies).
Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
