  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray and dust with flour, tapping out any excess.
  2. In the top of a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl over barely simmering water, melt the unsweetened chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer or whisk, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla, peppermint extract, and salt until combined. Beat in the chocolate mixture. Gently stir in the flour. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the brownies comes out clean. Arrange the mint squares on top in one layer and return the brownies to the oven until they are just melted, about 1 minute. Evenly spread the chocolate with a spatula and sprinkle with the crushed candy canes. Cool completely before cutting into 2-inch squares.

Footnotes

  • Note: To serve these at a party, or to package them nicely to give away for the holiday season, cut the brownies smaller and place them in paper candy cups.

These brownies were really good! They were hard to get out of the pan without ruining the brownie, so grease your pan well. I also think that the actual presentation of the brownies with the can...

Very yummy! These brownies are easy, delectable and pretty! The brownies are very fudgy, so don't overbake them like I did. The recipe said to bake them until a tester comes out clean. Well,...

A tip for those who had trouble getting the brownies out of the pan. When you bake brownies in a square pan, take a long-ish piece of foil and line the pan with it. Then, do it again after rot...

Excellent brownies! They got rave reviews at my annual cookie party and later at work! I must admit that I made a few additions... I added an extra shot of peppermint schnapps, extra mint cho...

We really liked these brownies! I didn't have a 9x9 square, so I put them in my 8x8...I don't think I would do that again...they were REALLY thick. I increased the baking time by 10 min, and t...

These are VERY rich...so if you are a chocolate lover this is definitely for you. The Ghirardelli makes a world of difference for sure.

These brownies were really good- extra minty. I had problems getting them out of the pan, even though I greased the pan. They seemed to crumble from the inside. Will definitely bake these again!
