       Yield: 1 servings
  20 1/2 oz Box Brownie mix
     2/3 c  Chocolate chips or*
     1/2 c  Butter, room temperature
     1/4 ts Salt
       1 ts Peppermint extract
       1 c  Confectioners sugar
  10 1/2 oz Chocolate fudge topping
   * chopped walnuts
    Brownies have been an American favorite for close to
   one hundred years. Time your brownies carefully so
   they do not come out too “wet” or “dry”: test for
   doneness several times during baking.
    Your guests won't know you've used a packaged brownie
   mix for this one-and don't tell them.
    Prepare brownies as directed on package, stirring
   chocolate chips or walnut pieces into batter before
   baking. Let brownies cool, cut into 1 1/2-inch squares
   and refrigerate for 2 hours.
    To prepare icing, cream together butter, salt,
   peppermint extract and confectioners sugar until
   smooth. Spread over brownies. Let icing set.
    Spread chocolate fudge topping over the top of each
   frosted brownie square. Place the brownies in the
   freezer for 5-10 minutes. Remove and serve or keep in
   a cool spot until serving.
