The cream cheese frosting on top really makes these delicious and the crushed candy canes give them a delicious minty flavor. If candy canes aren’t your thing, you can always replace it with sprinkles or just stick with the frosting alone.

Hi, these sound amazing and my boys will just love them! I’m wondering if the brownie mix you used was for a 9×9 pan or a 9×13 pan? Thanks!

9×13…thanks Karie!
