Mocha Mint Brownies Recipe

This mocha mint brownies recipe is brought to you by our friends at Lunchbox.  

Here we are a few days past Christmas and I’m at the point that if I see another candy cane I may cry.  We’ve crafted with them but we still have so many left….it’s making me crazy.  SO I decided, why not have a little baking fun and MAKE something yummy with those candy canes?  I was also enjoying some coffee while I came up with this and it occurred to me that so many of us love a peppermint mocha latte and why can’t we have that peppermint mocha latte flavor at home, in a yummy brownie form? And so….


I give you my Mocha Mint Brownies Recipe.  If you don’t want to make them from scratch, I won’t judge. You’ll just need to follow the box instructions and add the brewed coffee to the mix instead of the water, and add the crushed candy canes as directed.
