Ingredients

2 sticks butter melted and cooled a bit
1.5 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
3 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp Baker's Salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Sixteen candy canes
Frosting or melted almond bark
crushed candy canes & sprinkles for decorating

Baking these brownies is a round cake pan makes for easy cutting into triangles. We doubled down on the minty flavor with our Peppermint Extract. A candy cane tree trunk is the finishing touch.

Instructions

1.Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray two 8-inch round cake pans with nonstick spray. Line with parchment. Spray the parchment.
2.Stir together the butter, granulated sugar, extracts and eggs in a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
3.Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and divide the batter between the prepared pans. Smooth the tops.
4.Bake until the brownies pull away from the edge and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.
5.Let the brownies cool fully in the pans on cooling racks. Cut each circle into 8 equal triangles with a knife. Use a small offset spatula or pie server to lift each triangle out of the pan. Decorate with frosting or melted almond bark. Use sprinkles & crushed candy canes to decorate. Press a piece of the straight section of a candy cane to create the trunk.
