How to Make Peppermint Brownie Cupcakes
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper baking cups in each of 12 regular-sized muffin cups.
In medium bowl stir brownie mix, melted butter, and eggs until well blended.
- Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Place a peppermint patty on top if batter in each cup and press down into batter about 1/4 inch. You could also put some batter in the bottom of the cup, lay the patty on top, and cover it with more batter, too.
- Bake 18-22 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan onto cooling rack. Cool completely--about one hour.
- In small microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips on high about 1 minute; stir until smooth. Drizzle melted chocolate over top of each brownie cup. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
