I can tell you a brownie recipe…..
Buy a box of any prepared brownie, add peppermint extract to the batter not more the 2 tsp, because it will be over powering. Use some canned frosting or make your own and then crush peppermints on top, there awesome and easy.

    Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

    You can crush a candy cane and sprinkle it over the top before the glaze sets.

    Cookies:
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    1 cup packed light brown sugar
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups chocolate chips

    Glaze:
    3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
    2 drops mint extract, or more to taste
    3 1/2 teaspoons water

    For the cookies:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a medium bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a mixer beat together the butter with the sugars until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating until smooth after each addition and scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add in the vanilla. On a low speed beat in the flour mixture a little at a time. Gently mix in chocolate chips.

    On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop teaspoons of the batter about 2 inches apart. Bake until just cracked on top, about 8 to10 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking time. Cool completely.

    For the glaze:

    In a small bowl mix together the sugar; mint extract and water until smooth. Transfer mixture to a medium resealable plastic bag and snip off the corner. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies. Let cookies stand until set, about 10 minutes.

    Peppermint Snowballs

    18 oz package of chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
    8 oz package cream cheese, softened
    6 oz package while melting chocolate
    1 – 1 1/2 c. peppermint candies, finely crushed

    Mix together crushed cookies and cream cheese. Roll into 1-1/2 inch balls and set aside. Melt white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over low heat; stir in crushed candy. Dip balls into chocolate and set on wax paper to harden. Makes 2-1/2 dozen cookies.

    These cookies are easy to make and very tasty. If you want to intensify the peppermint taste, use Oreos with the mint cream filling.
