Recipe: Creamy Peppermint - Topped Brownies

Yea, I know, this really is nothing related to saving money, deal seeking and the like, but I just HAD to share this. It looks TOO unbelievably good to NOT share.
So, I think I will be sharing some recipes on and off, here and there.
OH, and if you find one or have a special recipe that you would like to share, just Contact Me and I will post it and it will forever remain in the Recipes contents on the right side of my blog :)

I JUST got my weekly email from Betty Crocker's Dinner Made Easy newsletter and CANNOT stop drooling over these:


Brownie Base
1 pkg. Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix
Water, oil and egg called for on brownie mix box 
2 cups whipping cream
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup crushed round peppermint candies (about 40 candies)
24 round peppermint candies

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil; spray bottom only with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare brownie mix as directed on package, using oil, water and eggs. Spread in sprayed foil-lined pan.
  2. Bake at 350°F. for 28 to 30 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool in pan on wire rack for 1 hour.
  3. While brownies are cooling, place 1/2 cup of the whipping cream in small saucepan. Sprinkle gelatin over cream; let stand 5 minutes to soften. Heat over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until gelatin has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in half of the crushed candies. Cool 20 to 25 minutes or until lukewarm, stirring occasionally. Most of candy will melt.
  4. Beat remaining 1 1/2 cups whipping cream in large bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold in remaining half of crushed candies. Working quickly, stir 1/4 of whipped cream mixture into gelatin mixture. Fold gelatin mixture into remaining whipped cream until blended.
  5. Spread whipped cream mixture over cooled brownies. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until serving time.
  6. To serve, using foil lift dessert from pan; cut into squares. Top each with whole peppermint candy.
Can you imagine your Holiday guests' faces as they indulge themselves with this creamy, chocolatey goodness?
