Peppermint Fudge Brownies

1/2 cup Butter, softened

2 cups Brown Sugar

1 ½ tsp Vanilla

4 Eggs

1 cup Texas Pure Milling Organic All Purpose Flour

½ cup baking cocoa

1 tsp. Sea Salt

¼ tsp Baking powder

½ cup crushed Candy canes

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream the butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light. Add the flour, cocoa, and salt, mixing 2 minutes.

  • Pour into a lightly greased bar pan (at least 12 inch by 9 inch) Bake 30-35 minutes--slightly under-cooked is better than overdone and dry.

  • Cover with Peppermint ganache.
