Scrumptious Wednesday: The Ultimate Christmas Cookie

It is the time of year to be invited to Christmas parties. 
I always have to rack my brain for an original food item that I want to bring with us. 
After going through my pinterest food board... these cookies definitely stood out to me. 
I dare you to try them, you will never take anything different to a Christmas occasion again.  

*Original recipe found here

Ingredients:
1 package brownie mix (I used fudge)
1 & 1/4 cups Flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp peppermint extract
Vanilla frosting
1/2 cup crushed candy canes

Directions: 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter a cookie sheet and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together brownie mix, flour, brown sugar and salt.  Add in eggs and milk and stir with a large spoon.  Add in melted butter, vanilla and peppermint extract, stir until well blended.  Grab a normal size amount of dough and roll it into a ball in your hand. Place on cookie sheet (should fit about 10).  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.  Once cool, frost each cookie and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. I used a can of regular vanilla frosting from the store but you can use any frosting recipe you'd like.
