My oven gets the most use during this special time of the year. The Christmas season brings with it all kinds of yummy treats including cookies, pies and hams. Some of my most popular kitchen creations incorporate the colors of the holiday season: reds, whites and greens. Brownies are one of my favorites, but not just because I love the delicious smells that naturally fill my home while they’re in the oven! I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t like brownies. Taking advantage of all the candy canes we have around our house, I decided to be a little adventurous, adding some pieces of the crushed mint candy to the batter. And using a baking mix is a great way during this hectic time of the year to save some extra time.
