  1. Line a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan with foil; grease the foil and set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat oil and sugar. Stir in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Set aside 2 tablespoons peppermint candy for garnish; stir remaining candy into creamed mixture. Spread into prepared pan.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. For glaze, melt chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave or heavy saucepan; stir until smooth. Spread over brownies; sprinkle with reserved candy.

Great flavor, made the house smell wonderful. Am I the only one that had a huge problem with the foil lining though? I ended up throwing away half of these because they were impossible to get ...

I was looking for a recipe so i could use up my left over candy canes and I came across these brownies. I used 9 crushed candy canes for the recipe. I followed most of the recipe with the exce...
