It means me telling myself that I'll go home and actually do my homework without distractions and it will be great.
Yeah.... no. Once I actually got home, I decided that homework was the last thing I felt like doing... and there was an entire pantry filled with random baking ingredients and endless opportunities.
Like these guys...
Then I found a recipe online that was for Peppermint Brownie Cookies, and thought perfect.
I changed the recipe a little, adding these pieces and some instant coffee to make the cookies more rich and chocolatey... and here's how they turned out!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
