These Brownies are guaranteed to satisfy all you sweet tooth cravings! In this recipe, chocolate has met its perfect mate – peppermint. Chocolate + Peppermint = fudgy on the inside with peppermint crunch pure goodness! So easy, so good, so worth it! To make it more exciting, I substituted butter with coconut oil, and sugar with honey – less calories = less guilt. How’s that? Also, its a perfect dessert to make with your children. My kids are always happy to help in the kitchen, especially if there is chocolate involved. These brownies with Peppermint Bark would make a gorgeous Christmas gift, and also be a perfect dessert to bring to any party, since it could be done ahead of time. Its that time of the year! Hope you enjoy!
1+1/8 cups coconut oil
1 +1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
3 large eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup Peppermint Bark, chopped
Start with preheating oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13X9 inch baking pan with parchment paper and grease (I did not line, and it still turned out good)
In a double boiler, melt coconut oil and chocolate chips.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, honey, salt and vanilla. Gently whisk into the chocolate mixture.
In a small bowl, sift flour and baking powder. Fold into the chocolate mixture.
Spread half of the mixture in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of chopped peppermint bark. Top with the remaining batter and spread evenly. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool, then sprinkle with the rest of peppermint bark.
Cut into squares, and enjoy!
