      So true! I actually had to put a “Do not touch!” note on a platter, so I at least could finish photographing. Definitely, there were no leftovers 😉

      These brownies really do taste amazing, and maybe if I’d reach for seconds or thirds, I’d feel a little guilty 🙂 So eat responsibly! Thank you so much for dropping by and leaving a comment!

      You can crush candies or you can buy peppermint bark. I know Winco Foods carries it in bulks. Same here, I didn’t care much about peppermint as a child, now I love it, especially with chocolate. Enjoy!

      If you’d like to substitute coconut oil, I think, butter is better choice, in this particular recipe.

      1. Tzivia
