These are the easiest and fudgiest brownies you can make, and they have a deep chocolate flavour, with just a hint of peppermint from the Crème de menthe, just to make everything more festive. The ganache gives a smoother and richer taste, and I love using it in brownies, as well as decorating with it. When it comes to decoration, I recommend gifting them plain or with a peppermint sugar glaze that hardens, because ganache can get a tad messy. If you decide to use ganache, you can add a tablespoon of Crème de menthe to it, to pair it with the peppermint taste of the brownies. In whatever way you decide to decorate and package them, they are certainly a lovely and delicious homemade gift.
