Pink Peppermint Crunch Brownies

This time of year is perfect for combining the flavor of mint with brownies. I’ve previously made a mint flavored brownie with a minty green icing (see link to that recipe below).

I decided to change things up this year and go for a pink colored icing, using Andes peppermint crunch candies (which are red, white and pink). I used these both in the brownie batter itself, like you might add chocolate chips, as well as on top of the icing.

My husband and I both loved these! They turned out moist and fudgy with some crunch and wonderful minty character. (Oh, also worth noting I used a crushed Doscher’s candy cane in the topping. They’re a Cincinnati classic and highly recommended if you can get one.)

Brownies:

  • 1 brownie mix

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 10 ounces Andes peppermint crunch baking chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.

  • Line pan with parchment paper sprayed with Baker's Release spray into a glass 8x8 inch baking pan for easy removal.

  • Bake brownies for about 50-55 minutes or until the batter no longer jiggles in the center.
  • Cool completely.
  • Mix the powdered sugar and soft butter with the remaining extracts and stir in enough of the milk to make a spreadable frosting; tint frosting with several drops of food coloring as desired.
  • Stir in 2/3 of the remaining chips into the frosting and spread on the brownies, sprinkling the last of those on top with the crushed candy cane.
