Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Game Day Snacks - Peppermint Brownies

Jenn at Frugal Upstate is collecting Game Day Snack ideas. Here are my recipes for her carnival, but check the link to see lots more ideas from her faithful readers.

Peppermint Brownie Surprise
Mix regular brownie mix according to instructions. (Aldi brownies are cheap and work well).
Layer half of the mix in the baking dish, then chopped up peppermint patties (or Symphony chocolate bars), then the remaining half of the mix. Bake as directed.

Mom's Frosted Peppermint Brownies
Bake brownies from a regular mix.
Mix frosting ingredients
2T margarine
1 c sifted powdered sugar
1T milk
¾ t peppermint extract
Refrigerate frosting until set, then frost the cooled brownies.
Mix glaze: 1 square chocolate and 1 T margarine.
Dribble glaze over frosted brownies.

These sound delicious. I can't get hold of peppermint patties but I'll have a go with after eight mints (minty goo covered in dark chocolate).
