Brownie Peppermint Cookies



Sorry to anyone following my blog, I know this is like the 3rd chocolate cookie in a row.  I’m loving the brownie cookie I guess =).  Anyone not following and just stopping by, you may also like Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies or Marshmallow Brownie Cookies.  They all basically start out with the same dough and are topped differently.  It is a delicious cookie even on it’s own.  I love this holiday version of it!  Peppermint and chocolate are divine together!  I hope you enjoy this holiday cookie as much as I do!


Brownie Peppermint Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen


  • 1 (18.3 oz) pkg brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker fudge brownie mix)
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 recipe vanilla cream frosting , recipe follows
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy canes

Vanilla Cream Frosting

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 6 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a cookie sheet and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together brownie mix, flour, brown sugar and salt. Add in eggs and milk and stir with a large spoon. Add in melted butter, vanilla and peppermint extract, stir until well blended. Spoon dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet (you can fit 12 per sheet). Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting. Once cool, frost each cookie and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
