Peppermint-Fudge Brownie Mix

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling

With the crushed peppermints sparkling against the dark chocolate, this mix is so pretty! I package the jar in a gift basket with red and white napkins, and then tuck in the baking instructions neatly printed on an index card. —Barbara Burge, Los Gatos, California
