There is something incredible about the combination of chocolate and peppermint. It’s a match made in heaven. I truly believe they are made for each other. Now that the holiday baking season is in full swing, I want to share with you the delicious recipe – Mint Fudge Brownie Truffles. This super simple recipe is made with Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits.
As much as I love this wonderful season, I stress about all the holiday details, from shopping to baking. I like to make sure everything is perfect. This means having simple, yet delicious recipes at my disposal for family and friends to indulge and enjoy. Simple is better especially during the holidays when the “to-do” list is excessively long. Brownies always make an appearance on my Christmas cookie tray. You simply can’t go wrong with a brownie dessert of any type. It always is a crowd favorite.
Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix has a special place on my pantry shelf. It’s my favorite baking mix. By adding additional ingredients like M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits and peppermint extract, you can take a simple brownie mix to a whole new level.
Before beginning any baking adventure, I always head to my local Walmart to stock up on all the supplies needed for the recipes. You can find the Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and the M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits can both be found in the baking aisle.
