Ingredients

  • 1 box (18 oz.) fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs (see box directions)
  • Vegetable oil (see box directions)
  • 14 peppermint cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 tube decorating icing in desired color
  • 3⁄4 cup crushed candy canes

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Thoroughly coat 2 muffin tins with cooking spray. (If you only have 1 muffin tin, you can also use 2 oven-proof ramekins or custard cups to make 14 brownie cups.)
  • Prepare brownie mix according to package directions (number of eggs and amount of oil will differ depending on brand). Spoon about 2 tablespoons batter in each muffin cup. Press cookies into batter. Evenly spoon remaining batter over cookies.
  • Bake until tops are glossy and crinkled, about 25 minutes. Let brownies cool in pan 10 minutes, then carefully remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
  • Pipe with icing, then sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Brownies will keep, loosely covered at room temperature, for 3 days.
