Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray baking sheets with nonstick cooking-spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine brownie mix, oil, water and eggs; stir with a fork to combine into a stiff dough. Dough will seem dry, but will completely moisten as you stir. (Knead briefly by hand, in the bowl, if preferred.)
  3. Working with 1 even tbsp. of dough at a time, roll dough into balls and place on baking sheets 2" apart.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 10-11 minutes or until edges are set. (Centers may appear slightly under-done.) Do not over bake. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks with a metal spatula and cool completely.
  5. Spread 1 heaping tsp. of frosting on the flat bottoms of half of the cookies. Top each frosted cookie with another cookie, flat side toward the frosting. Gently press together.
  6. Place the crushed peppermint candies in a shallow plate or pie plate. Roll the sides of each cookie in the crushed peppermints so that the candy pieces stick to the frosting.
  7. Variation:
  8. Also delicious with chocolate frosting. You can leave the candies coarsely crushed for a big crunch, or crush finely for a more delicate coating. If you prefer an open-faced cookie, simply spread each baked cookie with frosting and sprinkle with crushed peppermints before serving.

Substitutions for oil

Substitutions for oil

When you are baking brownies or cakes, you can replace the oil with cooked, rinsed, drained & pureed beans. Black beans are best with chocolate; pintos with carrot or spice cakes and white with yellow and/or white cakes. You don't notice the difference, and you also add protein & fiber.
