  • 2
    Make cookie dough as directed on pouch for drop cookies. Stir in 1/4 cup of the crushed candies. Drop dough by spoonfuls over top of brownie batter.
  • 3
    Bake 34 to 38 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean, covering with foil last 10 minutes if necessary to prevent overbrowning of cookie. Cool completely, at least 1 1/2 hours.
  • 4
    Spoon frosting into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut small tip from corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe over top of bar. Sprinkle remaining crushed candies over top. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store loosely covered in single layer at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To easily crush peppermint candies, place unwrapped candies in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal, and use rolling pin to coarsely crush.
  • tip 2
    To soften butter, cut in small pieces and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave butter in 5-second intervals, turning butter frequently so butter is softened but not melted.
  • tip 3
    Get your kids involved in making these Peppermint Brookies by letting them unwrap the peppermint candies.
