    Peppermint Brownies with Buttercream Frosting - They are rich, fudge-y, chewy and oh so chocolaty delicious!


    For the Brownies:

    • 18.3 oz Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix (1 box)
    • 2/3 cup butter (melted)
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 2 eggs (large)
    • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
    • 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy canes, for topping (optional)

    For the Frosting:

    • 1/2 cup butter (at room temp)
    • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 1/2 tbsp heavy cream
    • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract


    For the Brownies:

    • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine brownie mix, melted butter, milk, eggs and peppermint extract and using a wooden spoon, stir until combine. Pour mixture into a buttered 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish and bake in preheated oven 50 – 55 minutes. Allow to cool completely then frost with Fluffy Peppermint Buttercream Frosting and sprinkle with optional crushed peppermint candy canes (note that it will take several hours for the brownies to cool completely because they are thick, so plan accordingly).

    For the Frosting:

    • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip butter on medium-high speed until very pale and fluffy about 6 – 8 minutes, occasionally scrapping down sides of the bowl. Add in powdered sugar, heavy cream and peppermint extract then mix on low speed until combine, then increase mixer to medium-high speed and beat until very light and fluffy, about 3 – 4 minutes, occasionally scraping down sides and bottom of the bowl.
