Peppermint Bark Brownies
Now is the time to get rid of that old candy corn and break out the candy canes! I love the combination of the peppermint bark with the rich fudge brownies. Lining the pan with parchment paper will help you be able to get the brownies out easily. When it come time to cut the brownies I dip my knife into some hot water than dry it off and slowly make my cuts, repeating as needed.
