Peppermint Brownies Baking Tips:

Don’t over mix the batter. Over mixing adds too much air to the brownies and will give them a cakey texture. That’s fine but today we’re making fudge brownies.

Don’t overbake the brownies. Fudge brownies are slightly underbaked. When you remove the brownies from the oven the edges will have begun to pull away from the sides and the center will be gooey.

Cool before cutting. Actually, the best way to get a clean cut is to place the brownies in the freezer for 15 minutes after they cool. However, cooling for 1 hour at room temperature will still do the job.
