Trader Joe’s has no shortage of holiday treats, perfect for any last-minute dessert needs when you don’t have time to bake. From Shortbread French Butter Cookies to Boozy Macarons and Sweet Cannoli Dip, there are seemingly endless possibilities that will satisfy all kinds of palates. However, if you’re a fan of minty chocolate confections, this new item certainly takes the cake — or should we say, brownie.

The Instagram account, @trader_joes_treasure_hunt, recently discovered that an old favorite holiday treat has hit the bakery shelves once again. Trader Joe’s Peppermint Brownies are your classic gooey fudge brownie with a holiday twist. Made with rich cocoa, peppermint, and white chocolate chips, the brownies are topped with a drizzle of white chocolate ganache that looks just as delicious as it tastes. 

Retailing at $4.49, the seasonal dessert is perfect for any holiday party, last-minute treat for your festive spread, or even just a night in by yourself. Commenters on the post seem to be in favor of the returning item — and rightfully so. “These are so good,” wrote one user. While another said, “On my list to try next. Gotta love the holiday treats.”

The grocer even offered some suggestions for how to indulge on the Trader Joe’s website. “The bite-size format of these rich brownies makes them ideal for including with Candy Cane Almonds and Decked Out Tree Cookies on a candy-cuterie board — a.k.a. a charcuterie board filled with candy & cookies instead of meats & cheeses,” the brand mentions. “And if you’re looking to upgrade your offering of cookies and milk for Santa, these brownies will surely fit the bill — unless, of course, you finish them first.”

If you’re yearning to nourish your sweet tooth with a chocolatey treat, you’ll want to head over to your local Trader Joe’s ASAP — these brownies are seasonal!
