  • Yield: 12 brownies 1x


A boxed brownie mix is given a holiday makeover. Peppermint brownies are topped with peppermint marshmallows and more chocolate and nuts for a delicious treat.



  • 1 brownie mix (13x9 family size) plus ingredients to make brownies
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 25 jumbo peppermint marshmallows, cut into fourths
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  1. Mix the brownie mix according to the box directions, adding in the 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Grease an 8×8 or 9×9-inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Pour the prepared mix into the pan and bake according to the box directions.
  2. When the brownies are done, remove from the oven. Place the marshmallows on top, then sprinkle on the chocolate chips and pecans. Return to the oven for 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows have started to melt and puff.
  3. Let cool before serving.
