Low-fat Peppermint Fudge Brownies

Like my sister, Janel, I also have quite a sweet tooth. Sometimes, I just need something small to knip the craving. I bought a box of Pillsbury Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and I've been anxious to try it. While I had some stew in the slow cooker today, I decided to go ahead and make the brownies. Since it's the holiday season, I wanted to put a holiday spin on them. I added peppermint to the recipe. Yum.

Low-fat Peppermint Fudge Brownies


Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix (12.35 oz)
1 egg or egg subsititute (I used 3 tablespoons of eggs whites = 1 egg)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water
3 candy canes


1.  Set your oven to 350 degree farenheint for metal or glass pan. For dark-coated pan, set your oven to 325 F. Grease bottom of 8 x 8 or 9 x 9-inch pan or spray with no-stick cooking spray.

2.  Finely chop candy canes in food processor.

3. Combine brownie mix, oil, water and egg in large bowl. Stir until blended.
4.  Spread in greased pan until even. Then, sprinkle on crushed candy canes on top.
5.  Follow baking instructions on box.
6.  Cut and serve when completely cooled. Store covered.
7. Enjoy!

I recommend the 8x8 pan so that the brownies aren't too thin. These taste yummy though! They have a little crunch due to the peppermint, and I like that.  Hope you also enjoy!
Happy Holidays!
