Killer Brownies with Peppermint Frosting

I just put frosting on a brownie. No judging! Not that these brownies need it! They’re perfectly, fudgy, chewy, and delicious all on their own, but with peppermint frosting? They’re an overload of perfection. Yes yes, I’ll get to the recipe, don’t worry.

Raspberry Topped Espresso Brownie Bites!

Today I realized, I read my magazines backwards. It was about 5 o’clock in the evening. I was flipping through the Woman’s Day magazine lying stomach down, taking up the entire couch. As I flipped the pages I’d tap my feet on the soft fabric.
Like all girly magazines, they began with a section on dieting, then fashion, and beauty, maybe self help, and fitness tips. However the first pages I always turned to were last. That’s where they kept the good stuff, the sugar filled recipes that graced the cover of the magazine, and enticed you to buy it in the first place. If I started from the beginning, once I got to the decadent recipes, I’d just be guilted into not making them! Now you see how my backwards theory, really makes so much sense. ๐Ÿ˜‰
My magazine flipping and pinteresting throughout the evening led me with an itch to bake.
I just couldn’t decide what! There were so many recipes, many of which I did not have all of the ingredients. However, what I did finally decide upon fit perfectly!
