Peppermint Crunch Brownie Bites

Who is spending the weekend in the kitchen? My hand is raised. I’ve already baked a lot of cookies, but there is always more to bake during the holiday season. I know your baking list is probably full, but if you have room for one more treat, please add these Peppermint Crunch Brownie Bites to your list.

I made the brownies from scratch, but if you are in a pinch, you could use your favorite box mix. I used a mini muffin tin to make the brownie bites. They are the perfect size for holiday parties or for portion control. Although, the portion control thing really didn’t work for me. I kept popping the brownie bites into my mouth. I couldn’t stop myself:)

I dipped the brownie bites into white chocolate and sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. The white chocolate and candy canes created a festive look and added a nice “frosting” to the brownies. The recipe makes about 48 brownie bites-so you can taste test a few and give the remaining brownies as gifts or serve them at your holiday party.

Spread some holiday cheer with Peppermint Crunch Brownie Bites. They are sure to make anyone’s holiday season brighter.

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray mini muffin pan with non stick cooking spray or line with paper cups. Set aside.
  • 2. Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, vanilla, and peppermint extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; stir until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined.
  • 3. Fill each muffin cup slightly more than halfway full. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of a brownie bite. Allow the brownie bites to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.
  • 4. While the brownie bites are cooling, melt white chocolate in the microwave, in a microwave safe bowl, or by using a double-boiler. Dip the tops of the brownie bites in the white chocolate. Set on a wire cooling wrack and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Continue until all of the brownie bites are dipped and sprinkled. Let white chocolate harden before serving.

  1. These are meant for a party! So festive. I actually don’t have a ton of baking to do this weekend…kind of sad about it 😉

  2. aw what a cute idea — they look so good! since they’re so mini, it’d be too easy to pop 5 in your mouth one after another without knowing 😉

  3. These look so good…anything bite or mini just tastes better. Especially when it’s full-on with chocolate and peppermint…yum!

  4. I love these, but love that you put them in muffin cups, because I cannot tell you how many times mine have stuck, I always did it without cups because I thought brownies had to be. Silly me.

  5. Decadent and delicious! Love the photos too. I am heading to a cookie swap on Sunday, but I sure wish it were a cupcake swap!! I think that would be fun for Valentine’s Day. I wonder if anyone has ever done that 🙂

  6. Bite size deliciousness. These would fly off the dessert table for sure! And my hand is raised as well! Planning some fun in the kitchen this weekend as time and kids allow 🙂

  7. Yes, me too. I’ve been baking all week and love it! It is the epitomy of holiday spirit! And mmm brownie bites are just the thing and I must try your recipe.

  8. My son has been begging me to make chocolate chip cookies with candy cane pieces on top – this may just have pushed me over the edge – heaven

  9. These are adorable! I love chocolate and peppermint this time of year. I am going to have the Pin these, there is just too much to make this year!

  10. I’m spending the weekend in the kitchen! Epic gingerbread house planned! I think these would be the perfect little treats to munch on while constructing it 🙂

  11. These would be easy to make gluten free too! Gf brownie mix and bob’s candy canes are gf. I will be making these for a party tonight:)

  12. ohhhh emmm geeeeeee! these are the cutest little brownies ever! chocolate & peppermint may as well be the key to my heart… i love them together so much! i would eat 23 of those right now. no joke. 🙂

  13. We’ve been baking cookies nonstop these weeks. I’m ready for a break;)Love these brownie bites. Sending you hugs:)xx

  14. Made these Sat. morning for a christmas party, they were a hit! They tasted great, were easy to make and not even one was left when the party was done! These will stay on my christmas cookie list for years to come.

  15. These are so yummy! The only problem I had was they also stuck to the muffin paper liners. Wonder if I can spray the paper liners….and dipping them in the white chocolate didn’t work…so I used the white chocolate like frosting and frosted them!

  16. These were delicious! Note to others: If you want to use this technique on a 9×9 pan of brownies, cut the brownies BEFORE you pour on the chocolate… trying to cut solidified chocolate makes for a crumbly mess! It still tastes amazing though 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hi Rosanne-sorry you are having trouble with the brownies. I am not sure why they are collapsing because we have never had an issue.
