Rich, delicious, peppermint brownie truffles – a homemade peppermint patty filling surrounding by rich brownie crumbles and coated in chocolate!
More peppermint and chocolate stuff today. I did say that I have an over abundance of recipes involving that combination.
Because it’s amazing.
I’m not actually a giant fan of the typical truffles made from melted chocolate and cream (and whatever other flavour you’re involving in them). I’m not sure why, too sweet maybe? Although these peppermint brownie truffles are pretty stinking rich (and sweet) themselves, and I loved them, so that can’t be it.
I think it’s the texture. Although I love all kinds of chocolate and there’s nothing weird about the texture of truffles, but….I don’t really love them. Even I think that’s kind of strange.
Maybe I’m just not very good at making them? That could be it. You should probably all send me your beloved truffle recipes so I can find one I love too! Because clearly I don’t have enough sweets around here yet.
These peppermint brownie truffles – I loved.
I tried a no-bake brownie version first, and while they were good (the kids raved about them), I just didn’t love them. The texture wasn’t great, so I decided that the brownie layer needed to be baked.
That decision was a good one, because these peppermint brownie truffles are pretty fantastic. The (baked) brownie crumbles surround a homemade peppermint patty middle and the entire thing is coated in dark chocolate. This makes for an amazing combination. We like them cold, straight from the fridge (or freezer) for a pepperminty chocolatey treat that is rich enough you can be happy with just one. It’s not often that I’ll say that about something involving chocolate!
Add these to your baking list this Christmas for a special treat, or you can give them as a wonderful gift.
Maybe I could be convinced to enjoy truffles after all. As long as the texture is perfect, that is.
