Peppermint Brownie Pizza

I just got done dropping my husband off at the airport. He’ll be gone for 6 days, which basically translates into –Party Time!! 

Well, more like – I’ll order a pizza tonight. Then watch girl shows while simultaneously surfing Facebook and Instagram. I may also binge on Diet Dr. Pepper and this Peppermint Brownie Pizza.

Is it too early to be baking with peppermint?

I don’t think so.

Chocolate and peppermint are a year round thing to me. Junior Mints? Yeah- I’d enjoy those any day of the week.

Peppermint Brownie Pizza

I originally dreamed of making a brownie cookie that was topped with a fluffy peppermint buttercream icing and sprinkled with crushed candy cane kisses. Perfectly cute and tasty.

Then I got lazy and didn’t want to have to frost individual cookies.

Ain’t nobody got time for that!

But… problem – I still wanted that peppermint brownie cookie!

So I compromised and made a large brownie cookie (or pizza). Then I whipped up some deliciously light and fluffy peppermint buttercream icing, crushed up some candy cane kisses and I had my delicious treat, in much less time!

The fudgey brownie is tender on the inside with a crisper “crust” that tastes like a cookie. The peppermint frosting is subtle and refreshing, and the crunch from the kisses give it a perfect balance of textures. I drizzled the pizza with some chocolate syrup to add just a little more chocolate.

It’s delicious. Try it out and taste for yourself!

Ingredients

  • 1 Brownie Mix, for an 8x8" pan
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp water

For the Peppermint Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract, more if desired
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream

Toppings:

  • Candy Cane, chopped
  • Chocolate Syrup, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the brownie mix, 1 egg, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, and 2 tbsp water until a soft dough forms. Spread dough onto a lightly greased 12" pizza pan. (use a pan that does not have holes in the bottom). Bake for 15-18 minutes or until toothpick just barely comes out clean from center. Don't over bake!

Frosting:

  • Whip the butter in your mixer with a whisk attachment until light and fluffy. Add the peppermint extract and heavy cream. Gradually add the powdered sugar, beating in-between additions. Add more cream for a thinner frosting, or more powdered sugar for a thicker frosting.
  • Spread frosting on top of FULLY COOLED brownie pizza. Sprinkle with chopped candy cane kisses, then drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired. Cut into slices and enjoy!

  1. I totally get that “party time” mentality! I love having him around, but there is something being a lazy bum who eats ice cream for breakfast (which for some reason I can only do when I am by myself) that is just magical. But then I am glad when he returns so I don’t live in that state perpetually… 😉

    This cookie-pizza looks AMAZING. So happy to be seeing the peppermint starting to make its yearly appearance.

    Looks awesome. I’m a “Hunting Widow” til Sunday, stuck home with 2 surly teenage girls all weekend. Maybe this dessert will bring us together for some girl time.
