Thick and Fudgy Peppermint Mocha Brownies

Sometimes you just need a great brownie.  These peppermint mocha brownies are the perfect holiday brownie for this season’s festivities.  Thick, fudgy, rich and decadent… the peppermint mocha combination is a holiday favorite around here and it is hard to beat in brownie form.  I’m partial to a super fudgy brownie with a crackly top and that is exactly what you get with this treat!
