Expert Tips

To add even more peppermint flavor as well as crunch to finished bars, unwrap and crush 24 hard round peppermint candies; after pressing cookie dough in pan, sprinkle with crushed candies, then continue with recipe as directed.

These Peppermint Brownie Bars make the perfect base for brownie sundaes. For a truly decadent dessert, top each bar with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with some hot fudge topping.
