Peppermint Brownie Pizza

I made this to take to a church Christmas party.  I used a 9 x 13 brownie mix and put it in a 17" pizza pan.  I have added, to the right of the ingredients, what I used.  This was very good.

1 box Brownie Mix (for an 8x8" pan)  or for a 9 x13 brownie mix
1 egg                                                                   2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil                                          1/2 c oil
2 tbsp water                                                        3 T water


For the Peppermint Frosting:

1/2 cup butter, room temperature                       3/4 c butter
3 cups powdered sugar                                       4 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract, more if desired        1 t peppermint extract
3 tbsp heavy cream                                              4 T whipping cream

Toppings:
Candy Cane Kisses, chopped
Chocolate Syrup for drizzle, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl whisk together the brownie mix, 1 egg, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, and 2 tbsp water until a soft dough forms. Spread dough onto a lightly greased 12" pizza pan.Beth's was thin like brownie batter and she used a 17 " pizza pan. (Bake for 15-18 minutes or until toothpick just barely comes out clean from center. Don't over bake!


Frosting:


Whip the butter in your mixer with a whisk attachment until light and fluffy. Add the peppermint extract and heavy cream. Gradually add the powdered sugar, beating in-between additions. Add more cream for a thinner frosting, or more powdered sugar for a thicker frosting.


Spread frosting on top of FULLY COOLED brownie pizza. Sprinkle with chopped candy cane kisses, then drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired. Cut into slices and enjoy!
