Peppermint Buttermilk Brownies ~ Your favorite Buttermilk Brownies with a Peppermint Twist!

Are you a avid Black Friday shopper? Did you get trampled at the stores at 4 am this morning while I was snuggly tucked in my bed? If you did I hope it was worth it!

I on the other hand, am all about the online shopping over the Black Friday weekend and into Cyber Monday. I did the whole Black Friday shopping extravaganza once and that was enough for me. I suppose I might do it again if I REALLY wanted something and it was a REALLY good deal, but  I never find those deals, so I stay safely tucked in my bed. What about you? Did you find an amazing deals I’d be jealous of?

Since Christmas season is officially upon us I decided I’d kick things off with a Peppermint recipe of course! I always think Peppermint treats ring in Christmas like no other recipe. This recipe is adapted from my Mom’s famous Buttermilk Brownie. It’s one of her most requested recipes so I thought why not adapt a tried and true recipe for the season? It’s much more safe than going out on a limb with another recipe and well, I sometimes like safe henceforth me staying in bed on Black Friday!

If you are in the mood for more Peppermint recipe stay tuned this next week because I have a bunch more up my sleeve as I host a Peppermint Week!

    yum yum — I’m going to make these tomorrow. I only have the peppermint chips but I think they should work fine don’t you??

  • Amy | Club Narwhal

    I definitely am okay if I miss the crowds on Black Friday–luckily all those online deals made shopping so much easier this year! These brownies sound amazing–especially with the buttermilk!
