Peppermint Brownies...

My improved version of HERSHEY'S Brownies 
What you need:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup peppermint dust
1/4 cup milk


Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan. 

Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Add eggs; beat well with spoon. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in peppermint dust and milk. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. 

Bake until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan, for about 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before decorating. 

Add some frosting (I used vanilla Betty Crocker frosting) and add some crushed candy canes on top.

I made bite-size brownies and put them on small boxes to give as Christmas gifts.
