Gingerbread Brownies
The first 2 things that come to mind when I think of holiday desserts are gingerbread and peppermint. There will be plenty of tasty recipes revolving around those 2 delicious ingredients.

And I like simple. I don’t (usually) have time to bake something that calls for prepping, chilling, layers upon layers. I would rather be outside throwing snowballs, making igloos and shoveling my car out of the snow :-)

That’s right – only 4 ingredients and 5 steps! More time for trimming the tree and stuffing the stockings.
