As the cold nights add up, I find myself in the kitchen baking more and more.

When you have a big family that loves sweet treats, you never really feel like you keep goodies coming because someone is always eating the last one.

Then someone else is disappointed because they wanted that piece of pie, brownie or whatever delicious concoction was sitting there for the taking. 

These Kahlua Peppermint Mocha Brownies are one of these items that go fast in my house.

Kahlúa lends a wonderfully interesting and flavorful kick to all sorts of traditional recipes, cookies, cakes, even BBQ!

I make these brownies and we keep them on hand at holiday time.

I used to make them with regular Kahlúa but now I enjoy making them with all the many flavors that Kahlúa has to offer.

This means you can switch up these spiked Peppermint Mocha Brownies and make them any flavor you choose.

If you cannot find Kahlúa Peppermint Mocha, simply substitute another flavor of Kahlúa!

It’s that easy!

Kahlua Peppermint Mocha Brownies make a perfect gift idea and can be kept on hand for future unexpected gifts or even the drop in house guest.

Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top if you’d like. It actually looks really pretty that way.
