Okay guys. I'm going to just make a public service announcement now. It's for your own good...
These Peppermint Bark Brownie Bites should come with a warning label! Bite-sized rich and chewy dark chocolate brownies are filled with dark chocolate peppermint bark and sprinkled with holiday sprinkles for fun!
I have never had such a runaway hit on Christmas treats!
FOUR EASY STEPS TO MAKING PEPPERMINT BARK BROWNIE BELLS:
So dang easy to make...but there is a catch! Step by step, these couldn't be easier! Mini muffin pan - fill up halfway with the most delectible dark chocolate brownie batter ever. Bake for 10 minutes - that's all! Insert a Limited Edition Hershey's Peppermint Bark Bell. Wait 5 minutes for the candy to melt, and sprinkle with some holiday sprinkles.
So the catch? Trying to find these Limited Edition Hershey's Peppermint Bark Bells! At the beginning of the Christmas food shopping season (yeah, I think that started sometime in September...) these candies were plentiful (I'm sure).
The week before Christmas? Not so much! And after I made the first batch of these and they disappeared in like 20 minutes, I knew I'd need more...a lot more!
So I trundled off to fight the holiday shopping crowd at Target, and you can only imagine the terror I felt when I rounded the corner of the Christmas candy aisle and it.was.completely.empty. Like NOTHING was in the aisle - not even a piece of paper!
I moved over to the next aisle, and discovered the most beautiful aisle of fully stocked Valentine candy you ever did see! And on the back wall (my last resort) - stocked with the first batch of EASTER CANDY!
I was pretty sure that was it...no more Peppermint Bark Brownie Bites for my gang, and certainly none for this Christmas season. But when I was walking thru the register lane, my favorite little shopping buddy happened to notice that someone had put three bags of these treats on the bottom shelf. I'm pretty sure they were the last three bags in the country - and I didn't even feel guilty about snatching them up!
So, you can look at these photos, and you can imagine just how wonderful these are! But you'll probably have to wait until next Christmas season to make them!
My apologies...sort of!
