Money Saving Monday--More Homemade Gifts

I was checking out Our Best Bites the other day, one of my favorite food blogs and she had the greatest list of homeade gift ideas. So of course the second I glanced at the list I made a split-second decision to make these peppermint brownies. As a homemade gift for myself. And I guess to take to our bible study Christmas party tonight too. So I guess it's a homemade gift for other people who will get the priviledge to enjoy them too. The only thing I changed in the recipe is to use a box of brownie mix instead of making my own with bittersweet chocolate squares. I'm sure I am capable of making the brownies from scratch...I just chose not to.

Feel free to do as you wish. I used the Ghirardelli box of mix from Costco--because it's sooo delcious. But next time I think I'll use one without any chocolate chunks because with the peppermint frosting, chocolate ganache, and candy cane chunks on top, the chocolate chunks were a bit much. But, don't worry I still managed to choke down two before bed last night. If you can find an hour in the middle of your probably mile-long Christmas list...make these. They're so good. As a homemade Christmas gift for someone...or not.

On a final note I'd like to quote one of my favorite movies, "I don't know what to say but, it's Christmas ... and we're all in misery." Name that movie!
