SO good! Just the right amount of peppermint, fudgy in the middle, crisp on top with a little candy crunch. We made them for teacher gifts and got so many compliments and requests to share the recipe! Total keeper.
They are too rich for me. Even if I was able to tolerate the richness, I've had better brownies. The peppermint pieces are a bit too sweet. If you cut away the peppermint pieces, the rest of the brownie is sort of soft, but not quite gooey. I'll cut these in halves or quarters and have a piece with some vanilla ice cream. That's the only way that I can handle the richness.
