Peppermint Crunch Brownie Bites

2 cups sugar

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup flour


2 cups white melting wafers (I used Ghirardelli Candy and Dipping White Melting Wafers.)

5-6 candy canes, crushed 


Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Grease a 9-by-9-inch baking pan. 

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, melted unsalted butter and salt. Whisk in 3 eggs, one at a time. Add the cocoa powder and flour, mix well.  

Fill the mini muffin cups slightly more than half full.  Bake in a preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until just set.  Cool for five minutes and remove the bites from the muffin tin.

While the brownie bites are cooling, melt the wafers in the microwave following the package directions.  Dip the tops of the brownies in the melted chocolate.  Sprinkle with bits of crushed peppermints.  Set aside for the candy to set before serving.
