My work schedule constantly has me scrambling for time, so I have no problem (whatsoever!) with taking shortcuts in recipes. These Kahlúa Peppermint Brownies are made with a boxed mix and are incredible!

Did you know that you can take any boxed brownie mix, use Kahlúa instead of the water it calls for, and have yourself some pretty awesome Kahlúa brownies?
Dress those brownies up for the holidays even more by adding a simple icing made with Kahlúa and sprinkle some crushed peppermint candy on top!
There’s nothing more thoughtful to me than the gift of food for the holidays. I will simply wrap desserts in cellophane wrap and make it pretty with some ribbon and a cute ornament… everyone seems to love it!
So if you’re pressed for time this holiday season and want to give a friend a cute, thoughtful gift… this brownie recipe is for you!
For the brownies:
- 1 boxed brownie mix
