Start by making a batch of your favorite brownies (from scratch or boxed mix – either one works!), underbaked by just a few minutes. Allow the freshly baked brownies to cool for 15 minutes and then use a fork to create a large pile of brownie crumbles.  If desired, add several drops of peppermint extract or peppermint essential oil to the brownie crumbs (optional).
