    Sarah_Star's Note:

    These are like the brownies they serve at Starbucks around the holidays, but better. Very rich, but very worth it. Feel free to add creme de menthe liquor or peppermint schnapps to the brownie batter and buttercreme frosting in place of peppermint extract.

      Mmm, delicious! I followed the recipe exactly. I ended up with a LOT of chocolate frosting - that layer was probably half an inch thick. But the taste was fabulous. Thanks for sharing, Sarah!
