Well, it's not christmas at my house until we have brownies. and, you could make them different by serving them with chilled egg nog sauce drizzled on top.

The warm brownie with the chilled sauce would be super good.
And if you want to be more fancy and festive. first pour some sauce on the bottom on the serving plate, add 1 or 2 dots of red and green food coloring and swirl into a decorative design to give it a definite christmas feel.

Here's a recipe for the sauce Traditional Egg Nog Sauce Recipe | Recipezaar

i actually think what i found is a candy thermometer...but it wasn't in the bathroom, it was in the kitchen, and it says the word CANDY on it. and it looks like it would clip on the side of a pot

Brave man, attempting to make candy on his first go. (assuming this is your first time making caramel) Hope it turns out great and your wife enjoys and appreciates your efforts!

Well there ya go. Hopefully they work for you, I haven't messed them up yet, they are pretty easy. I'd check the thermometer in boiling water though first, to make sure the temp is right. Mine is at about 217 when it should be at 212.

Ha, didn't mean to make you nervous, sorry!
I think it's great that you're jumping right in, I'm sure they'll turn out just right.
