Peppermint White Chocolate Brownies

I remember a conversation I once had with my brother about chocolate. We were both pretty young, and he asked me what my favorite type was. “That’s easy – milk chocolate!”, I said almost immediately. “It’s so yummy!” He responded that his favorite was dark – he liked how it was a little bitter – and … More Peppermint White Chocolate Brownies
