In some ways, I sort of feel like a bad blogger. In all of December, I brought you just one dessert. For that matter, I didn’t do any desserts in November at all. True, I’ve never been known as a baking or desserts blogger, and any longtime reader will know that I always choose savory over sweet. Still, I can’t let the holidays get by without at least a second dessert.
I don’t really understand why brownies aren’t the official dessert of any holiday or occasion. Thanksgiving has pies, birthdays have cake, Christmas has cookies. But this year, Christmas has brownies. Skillet brownies.
I whipped up a basic brownie batter (albeit a small batch, perfect for just two servings), and added a dash of peppermint extract for some seasonal charm. I divided the batter between two copper and steel mini frying pans from RestaurantWare. After a quick layover in the oven, my warm peppermint brownies were topped with cold vanilla ice cream, and a handful of crushed candy canes.
Should brownies be the *real* official dessert of the winter holidays, or what?
