Peppermint Brownies



Hard at work now putting the final touches onto the manuscript of my cookbook.  I am getting really excited about its impending publish. It won't be long now.  It has taken a bit longer than originally thought.  I don't think my Editor thought I could do or would do as much as I did so it's going to be quite a large book, but having seen the draft, I can tell you now it is also going to be a beautiful book and I am feeling really good about it!

These last few days have been taken up with fixing little bits here and there, going over the manuscript with a fine tooth comb.  With over 800 pages you can imagine the time involved in that.  Its well worth it though because I really want it to be a book you will be happy to make a part of your valuable cookery book library!  

I have also re-done some photographs of some of the recipes in the book and I thought I would give you a tiny sneak peak here today of what you have to look forward to.  Peppermint brownies.  Just one of the several hundred recipes you are going to find in the book! Let me tell you now, the index alone is 8 pages, double columned. That's a LOT of deliciousness to look forward to!

And this recipe is just a sample of what is in there.  They are dense and moist . . .  and have a beautiful peppermint flavour.  Mint and chocolate go so well together!  

 
You could almost cut these into tiny squares and serve them with coffee after a dinner party as an extra special treat!  They are so good.
There is a double whammy of peppermint flavour in the batter.  One form comes from peppermint tea that you blitz with the sugar. The second peppermint blast comes from the use of peppermint extract. Soooo good! 

They have a sweet and glistening chocolate ganache topping which is decorated with a melted white chocolate drizzle that you run a toothpick through to give it an extra pretty finish.  These are some of my favourite brownies ever, which is saying a lot!
