Ingredients

For the brownies

  • 1 cup butter
  • 16 ounces baking chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the peppermint bark topping

  • 1 12 ounce package white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cups crushed peppermint candies or candy canes
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil or shortening

Instructions

  • Place butter and baking chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir.  Repeat in 30 second increments, stirring after each one, until chocolate is fully melted. Set aside to cool slightly
  • Line and grease a 9"x13" baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add sugars and whisk together until combined.
  • Pour cooled chocolate mixture and vanilla. Whisk together until combined.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, whisking until smooth.
  • Fold in flour, cocoa powder, and salt, stirring until just smooth.
  • Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared dish.
  • Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, until cooked and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool completely, still in the baking dish.

For the Peppermint White Chocolate topping

  • In a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl, add white chocolate chips and oil. Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval.
  • When melted, spread melted white chocolate over brownies. Then sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies.
  • While white chocolate is still soft, pull brownies out of baking dish by the lining and cut into squares.
  • Allow chocolate to set before serving (or not because who doesn't love gooey, melted chocolate?!)
