Can you believe it is the 10th of December! Yikes, how did that happen?? Well, I’ve got my 9 buddies back with another amazing Blog Hop. Peppermint is definitely the flavor of the season and it is also our theme for the month. We’ve got lots of peppermint flavored treats to share with you as well as some darling peppermint inspired crafts! Be sure and visit all the blogs to check out the details on their peppermint project. But first, I made Peppermint Brownie Bites! Though they are delicious no matter how you slice it, I struggled with the chocolate! See below for the tips I got from Facebook friends.

Now for the story on my Peppermint Brownie Bites. I’ve been a big fan of cake pops since they came out 5 or so years ago (from the fabulous Bakerella). My kids also love them. I’d heard of, but never made brownie bites–the same concept, except I baked the brownies and crumbled them up with peppermint pieces. But it’s the melting chocolate that I’ve always struggled with! My treats always taste good, but don’t always look so pretty. After I took this horribly clumpy chocolatey picture:

I took a Facebook poll, and got LOTS OF TIPS. Click to read all about it. I ultimately decided to try using shortening instead of oil to thin out the chocolate and cook it in shorter intervals. I was pleased with how it turned out, but the red one in these images was more runny than the green. I can’t win every time, right? Here is a little step by step process in pictures:

How to make Peppermint Brownie Bites

My daughter and I made them together for her to take to a church activity with other girls her age (they got that first batch of red above).

and it was quite delicious to snitch the “dough.”

They were a big hit! I tried to make them look like ornaments…do they sorta look like ornaments???
