Cook's Notes

Place peppermint patties on warm, not hot, brownies so they soften but do not melt. Candy eyes, icing pens, and candy skulls are available online.

    I've tried a few different brownie recipes and this one is by far the best. I have even made these without the peppermint patties and they got devoured at home and at the office. This will be my go to recipe.

    Unfair to review as I used a box brownie mix, but these are such a huge hit with kids I wanted to give it my thumbs up. I only used one row of peppermint patties, both to cut costs but also as not to lose the brownie flavor. My kids, and the kids in my daughter's class all loved this idea. A "Martha" recipe, but easy enough for us mere mortals.
