Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt 1 1/4 cups butter and chocolate in 3-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in sugar. Add eggs and 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract; beat just until mixed. Stir in flour and salt; mix well.
  2. Grease bottom only of a 13x9 inch baking pan. Spread batter into pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until brownie just begins to pull away from sides of pan. (DO NOT OVER BAKE.) Cool completely.
  3. Combine all frosting ingredients except milk in small bowl. Beat at low speed, gradually adding milk to desired spreading consistency.
  4. Drizzle frosting over brownies. Sprinkle with candy; gently press into frosting. Cover; refrigerate to set frosting (30 minutes). Cut into bars.

My mother in law has always made a brownie like this for holidays, but refuses to share the recipe! (She says it's in her will) Imagine the look of surprise on her face when I showed up with these! I don't need her recipe anymore! My husband says they are even bettter than Mom's!


These brownies were very dry and bland! I would suggest buying quick bake brownies and just adding some peppermint extract to them. That's what I am going to do next time.


there are minty good.
