It’s Christmas cookie crunch time! That’s where my easy Peppermint Brownie Batter Truffles step in. With just 4 days until Santa comes to town, I know many of us are in high gear trying to get everything done. The shopping, wrapping, cleaning and cooking are just part of the Christmas experience. However; sometimes there just isn’t enough time and energy to go around when trying to fit all of it in along with those year-end work schedules and holiday parties. I personally have been just trying to stay afloat after returning from a wedding in Mexico last week. But, a year without Christmas cookies wouldn’t be festive at all.
This recipe is the perfect solution for those of us who are pressed for time but want to make their cookie contributions. Peppermint Brownie Batter Truffles are rich in flavor and the no-bake recipe requires all of 15 minutes of hands-on prep. It’s not quite a cookie but, it certainly qualifies as a Christmas dessert (and the recipients will be all but too happy for these delectable bites!).
Two years ago I shared a recipe for Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cake Batter Truffles. They are an absolute favorite of mine and I continue to make them for many occasions. But, it was time for a change up. I used the same basic recipe for today’s iteration and it proved to be another delicious variation. Enjoy the candy cane crunch, the deep dark chocolate flavor and the cool hint of mint.
