Like most crafters I have gifts to finish so I needed easy recipes to make this past weekend for family & friends. Amy and I later dropped some goodies by Apple Yarns and the declared favorites were Peppermint Brownies and Salted Caramels. As requested here are the recipes.
1 box brownies as prepared from your favorite box, 1 container of prepared cream cheese frosting.
Whip the frosting with 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract and 4 drops of green food coloring or enough to make the frosting mint green in color. Frost the brownies and sprinkle with crushed candy cane. Enjoy!

Hint, wax paper is not a substitute for parchment paper.
