Before getting started you’ll need to grab just a few basic ingredients. Another thing I love about this recipe is that you can either use your favorite made-from-scratch brownie recipe, or a boxed mix!
If using a box mix, you’ll need the ingredients called for on the brownie mix box (usually egg and vegetable oil), as well as chocolate syrup and crushed peppermint. If you can’t find any crushed peppermint, just grab a few candy canes and crush them yourself.

Ingredients to Make Double Delight Chocolate Peppermint Brownies
1 box Brownie Mix, or your favorite brownie recipe
Water, vegetable oil and egg – if using brownie mix box
1/4 cup or less of chocolate syrup
4 tbsp. crushed peppermint
Instructions to Make Double Delight Chocolate Peppermint Brownies
Begin by baking the brownies in a 9″ x 9″ square pan according to your recipe or the instructions on the box. Once the brownies are finished baking, allow them to cool completely. Tip: if your kids or husband sneaks in and pulls off some of the chocolatey crust on top, don’t panic, it’ll be covered up!
Next, pour a small amount of the chocolate syrup into a snack bag and snip off a tiny corner. This makes it easier to control the amount of chocolate as you do not want too much. Now drizzle some of the syrup over the brownies.
Follow with a sprinkling of crushed peppermint…
and then finish off with another drizzle of chocolate syrup.
That’s it! You are done! See, I told you it was incredibly easy! One more tip: I always let the brownies sit for least 15 minutes before serving so the syrup will set a bit.
These soft and chewy, chocolatey peppermint brownies not only make a great sweet treat for the entire family to enjoy, they also make an amazing homemade gift! After all, not many people can resist that heavenly combination of chocolate and peppermint!
