READY IN: 50mins


  • 1
    cup butter
  • 6
    ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3
    cups sugar
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • 2
    teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 18 - 14
    teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 4
    large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 23
  • 13
    cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3
    cups roughly chopped peppermint oreos (approx 18)
  • 1
    candy cane (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, and grease lightly.
  • In a medium-large saucepan over low heat, melt together butter and chocolate, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in sugar, salt and vanilla & peppermint extracts; remove from heat.
  • Whisk in eggs one at a time, waiting until each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Stir in flour and cocoa powder until mixture is uniform. Stir in crushed cookies.
  • Spread batter into prepared pan.
  • If desired, crush 3-4 additional cookies finely and scatter on top of batter. You can also crush 1 candy-cane and sprinkle it on top; it will melt slightly but still be pretty and festive.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs, but not coated with batter.
  • Cool brownies in pan on wire rack for 20 minutes, then lift brownies in the foil out of the pan and place on a wire rack to cool completely (at least one more hour) before slicing.
