Tips for Making Peppermint Bark Brownies
Lining the pan with parchment paper. This will help you be able to get the brownies out easily.
Dip the knife in water for easy cutting. When it comes time to cut the brownies I dip my knife into some hot water than dry it off and slowly make my cuts, repeating as needed.
Cool Brownies completely. As tempting as it may be to dive right in once they are done, letting them cool completely will make it much easier to cut and the brownies will not fall apart.
Melt Chocolate with a double boiler. If you have never melted chocolate with a double boiler, read how to melt chocolate with a double boiler. You might be tempted to melt the chocolate in the microwave but that can burn the chocolate and harden it so the best way to melt the chocolate is with a double boiler.
