The brownie mix helps save time but please see below for an excellent brownie recipe to use for this dessert. If you choose to use a brownie mix, simply follow the directions given. If you prefer home-made, simply follow steps 3 and 4 from the first recipe after you have made your own fudge brownies.

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract

  • 1/3 cup chopped salted peanuts (if desired)

Directions Using Brownie Mix
