Peppermint Rocky Road Brownies from www.tasteandtellblog.com

Christmas is right around the corner.  The tree is decorated, the presents are bought.  The advent calendar is almost complete.  Too Many treats have been made and consumed.   It all just goes by way too quickly.

We still have a lot of Christmas festivities before Sunday, so I’ll be leaving you with one more treat this week as I take a short blogging break to enjoy time with family over the next few days.

These brownies came to mind after trying to figure out what to do with a ginormous bag of jumbo peppermint marshmallows that I bought on impulse at the grocery store one day.  My sister actually gave me this idea, and I decided to go with it.  These brownies definitely have a bit of holiday flair to them.  I’ve been going crazy with the peppermint this year, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I had the jumbo  marshmallows, so I cut them into pieces, but I later learned that you can also find these marshmallows in the regular small size.  If you need one last holiday treat idea, these would be great!!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.  I’ll be back next week with a few appetizer ideas (perfect for New Years) and some looking back at this past year.  I can’t believe it’s almost over!

Merry, merry Christmas from my family to yours!!
