Peppermint Bark Brownies
Prepare and bake brownie mix according to package directions, using a greased 13”x9” baking pan. After baking, set aside and cool completely in pan, about one to 2 hours. In a saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate chips and margarine, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. Spread chocolate mixture over brownies; sprinkle with crushed candy. Let stand about 30 minutes, until frosting is hardened. Cut into squares. Makes 2 dozen.
Try this yummy variation on the original and you're sure to get rave reviews!
