Serves | Prep Time 15-20 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

1 package Ghiradelli Chocolate Brownie Mix
Eggs — however many it says on the box
Oil — however much it says on the box
Peppermint Schnapps — replace half the water it calls for with Peppermint Schnapps
2 oz mint chocolate chips or chunks, melted (Trader Joe’s has good mint dark chocolate chips)
2 (approx) Tbsp milk, half & half, or cream
1/2 cup Candy Canes pieces (smashed into little bits)


Prepare brownies according to package directions, only sub Peppermint Schnapps for 1/2 the water. (To make without alcohol, just add 1 tsp peppermint extract and do everything else the package instructions say). Grease a baking pan, pour in batter, and bake for 1/2 the baking time.


Meanwhile, melt mint chocolate with 1-2 Tbsp milk in microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring in between. Every 20 seconds, add a little more milk, half & half, or cream if necessary, and gently stir in until smooth. Chocolate should become a sauce consistency: runny enough so you can pour it, but still thick like hot fudge. After the brownies have baked for 1/2 the time, pull them out, drizzle the chocolate sauce over them, then sprinkle them with the candy cane shavings. Return to oven for the remaining bake time. (They may take a bit longer to cook, so put them in for more time if necessary but check often so they don’t overcook).
