1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels - divided use
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 (16-ounce) container prepared vanilla frosting
1 (4.5-ounce) tube chocolate decorating icing
- For Brownies: Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Combine sugar, butter and water in medium saucepan. Bring just to a boil, over medium heat, stirring constantly; remove from heat. (Or, combine granulated sugar, butter and water in medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking time. Stir until smooth.)
- Add 1 cup morsels, peppermint extract and vanilla extract; stir until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Stir in flour mixture and remaining morsels. Spread into greased 9-inch-square baking pan.
- Bake in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely (center will sink) in pan on wire rack.
- For Frosting: Spread vanilla frosting over brownie. Squeeze chocolate icing in parallel lines over frosting. Drag wooden pick through chocolate icing to feather. Let stand until frosting is set. Cut into bars.
