Cream Cheese Peppermint Brownies

Cream Cheese Peppermint Brownies are an easy holiday treat! Using fudgy brownie mix, these festive brownies are ready in no time. 

Oh, the holidays! They are coming up on us fast. And as much as I love them, I know that getting through them will be pretty stressful. I’ve already started stocking up and prepping for the season! One way to avoid a stressful holiday season is to make sure you have ingredients on hand for last-minute holiday recipes.

Last week, I visited my local Dollar General to stop up on some items that I know I’ll need during the holidays! One of my favorite, EASY recipes that I make throughout the holidays are these Peppermint Cream Cheese Brownies!

All you need is a box of Betty Crocker Brownie Fudge Mix, a can of Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting, and some peppermint candy to get started! All three ingredients can be found at your local Dollar General!

I typically choose Betty Crocker Brownie Fudge Mix and Cream Cheese Frosting because they taste homemade and help me get these holiday brownies in the oven in about 5 minutes! 

These decadent holiday brownies are popular with the kiddos because who doesn’t love brownies? But, they’re also a hit with adults because of the additions of cream cheese frosting and crushed peppermint! They taste special and just right for the season! 

I love making these Peppermint Cream Cheese Brownies for holiday celebrations. They are always super popular, and nobody believes that they aren’t from scratch! Give them a try, and let me know what you think in the comments. Shop now at Dollar General!
