Peppermint Brownies

Peppermint Brownies


  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup crushed peppermint candy, divided
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening


  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.

Yum Yum!
