Peppermint frosting for brownies. Sounds like a win, right? Fudgey Decadent brownies topped with a creamy peppermint buttercream frosting, topped with festive sprinkles. Is there anything that screams "holiday season" more? I don't think so! This Peppermint Brownie Recipe is sure to be a game changer. The peppermint buttercream is creamy and flavorful and has the perfect amount of flavor to compliment the brownies. I usually use a brownie mix, since they are sooo fast and easy, which makes these simple and easy and quick!
They are perfect to take to a party or for an easy treat for a night of entertaining. Everyone loves gooey, fudgy brownies. Add the festive flair of peppermint frosting and you won't have any leftovers!
How to Make This Peppermint Brownie Recipe
Make brownies! I recommend your favorite box mix, or these are one of our favorite homemade recipes.
Next, make the peppermint buttercream frosting. I like to use slightly softened butter for buttercream frosting. It should be slightly soft, but still a little bit cold. Kind of a nice in between cold butter and softened butter. Beat the butter on high for 1 minute. Add in the peppermint extract and beat another 30 seconds. Finally, add in the powdered sugar and beat until well combined.
Smooth the frosting over the brownies and top with you favorite sprinkles or festive decorations. I don't always love the texture of sprinkles, so I used some Hershey's Trees & Stockings White Creme Chips. You could literally use anything that's small and fun you can find in the Holiday section of your local grocery store.
Tips & Tricks
These are best fresh, but store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. They can be stored at room temperature, or in the fridge. I personally like mine cold from the refrigerator!
