Do you have anything special planned for your Valentine? I suggest skipping the last minute gifts and making your love this decadent dessert instead.
It’s one from the archives created by my sis, Nads, who is known for her over-the-top recipes. The name says it all – Peppermint Schnapps Brownies With Fireball Whiskey Icing And Dusted Cinnamon Hearts. Doesn’t the name make you want to whip out the mixer and try it right now? It’s like the best brownie of your childhood memories with an adult splash of booze. That’s what I call a win–win!
Nads has been perfecting the art of fitting more good things into one recipe than anyone I know since she was 8 and making me stacked Dagwood sandwiches. Because why should a great sandwich have only one layer when it could have 4 instead? I’ve really benefited over the years from her culinary creativity, and this recipe is no exception. Deep rich chocolate plus peppermint schnapps plus fireball whiskey. And a dusting of everyone’s perennial favourite this time of year – cinnamon hearts! It’s become a favourite in my home, and I hope you’ll give it a try.
(Pssst. Keep in mind that this recipe is actually good any time of year, so don’t limit it to Valentine’s Day!)
