DIRECTIONS

  • Bake brownies according to package directions in a 9 x 13" pan. Cool. Blend sugar, milk, peppermint extract and 4 tbsp butter until smooth; spread over cooled brownies. Melt chocolate and 3 tbsp butter in microwave (do not overcook, just until melted. I do 12 seconds at a time, stir, 10 more seconds, etc). When chocolate is melted, stir and spread over the peppermint icing. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes if you choose. When chocolate is set, cut into squares.
