Very important announcement: I baked a dessert!
Inspired by the Peppermint Brownies on my friend Jen's blog Fresh from the..., I tackled my fear of baking. Admittedly, I used boxed brownie mix, but baby steps are key here. I also couldn't find peppermint cookies or chocolate chips (wouldn't swirled peppermint chips have been so pretty?), so used mint generic "Oreo"ish cookies instead.
They turned out a bit fudgy, but better than dried out! With this success under my belt, I have a mind to try more desserts. Shocker of the holiday season! Hope you're all staying warm and filling up on carbs and sweets.
