Servings 24 brownies
- 1 box brownie mix + package ingredients usually eggs, oil, water
- 2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
- 1/2 cup butter - softened
- 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp peppermint extract
- 1-1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup candy canes – crushed
- 6 squares peppermint bark – chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare the brownies to the package directions for a 9×13 baking pan. Bake per instruction on box.
Allow the brownies to cool before decorating.
While the brownies are cooling, combine the confectioner's sugar, butter, cream and peppermint extract in a large mixing bowl.
Spread over cooled brownies.
Place frosted brownies in the refrigerator so that the frosting can firm up before adding the ganache.
While the frosted brownies are chilling, make the ganache by combining chocolate chips and butter in a small saucepan.
Heat over low, stirring constantly until completely melted & silky smooth.
Pour over frosted brownies and smooth out into an even layer with an offset or silicone spatula.
