Everyone could always use a few more brownies in their lives. We here at The Verde at Greenbelt Station Blog are huge advocates of brownies, too — so much so that we’re celebrating National Brownie Day! This unique holiday can get lost in the shuffle of all the others that occur in December, but we wanted to make sure that it doesn’t go unnoticed. That’s why we put together a list of our favorite brownie recipes for you to try this December 8th. Whip up a batch of fresh brownies in your Greenbelt, MD apartment and let us know what you think.

Peppermint Candy Cane Brownies

During the winter, everyone could go for a little more peppermint. It reminds us of the holidays! They combine everything you love about the brownies with a layer of deliciously cool peppermint frosting. You even get a little bit of extra crunch with some peppermint candies sprinkled on top.

To make these delicious holiday brownies, you’ll need flour, baking powder, salt, unsweetened chocolate, unsalted butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, powdered sugar, peppermint extract, milk, red food coloring, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and some crushed candy canes.

Super Fudgy Brownies

If you’re looking for a brownie that’s super heavy on the chocolate, these ones are perfect for any fudge-lover. The density and moistness of these brownies are also a huge plus.

To prepare these delectable treats, make sure to have flour, salt, cocoa powder, unsweetened baking chocolate, butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Whatever you do, don’t forget a tall glass of milk with these, too. Trust us, it just enhances everything.

Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S’mores Brownies

Have you ever heard of something more heavenly? It’s like your three favorite things came together specifically to make you happy. This brownie is a little bit of something else. It’s going to get messy, so make sure you have plenty of napkins on hand for everyone.

To make these beautiful sweet treats, make sure you have graham crackers, sugar, salt, butter, cocoa powder, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking powder, peanut butter cups, dark chocolate, and jet-puffed marshmallows.

If it were up to us, brownies would be celebrated every day of the year. In the meantime, December 8th will be a momentous occasion for all brownie lovers. Let us know what you’re making for National Brownie Day this year!
