The Easiest Brownie Mix Peppermint Crinkles

At this busy time of the year isn’t it nice to have a delicious, festive and fun cookie that is fast? I gift you my Peppermint Brownie Crinkles! These cookies start with-gasp- a MIX! I used to be so anti mixes and preached everything homemade….well, you know what? Life! Life is what. And when things get busy why not have a recipe under your belt that makes things a little bit easier on you?

Plus these are super fun to make with the kiddos. Because it’s quick you’ll keep their attention from start to finish rather than the experience of measuring, pouring, yelling, cleaning, more pouring, likely more scolding and then they’re gone leaving you with the rest of the baking!

These are definitely best served the same day you bake them or within 2-3 days. I haven’t tried freezing them but I’m sure that would be a great option also! Have fun adding these pretty peppermint dotted cookies to your repertoire. It’s nice to have an easy button to push every once in awhile, Drizzlers!

  • 1 box gluten free brownie mix
  • 1/2 c. All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
