Peppermint Brownie Recipe

Ok, as promised, here is the recipe.  It's funny.  I used to make these all the time when Zack and I were dating.  He loved them.  I was looking through recipes and I realized it had been YEARS since I last made them.  Felt a little bad and wanted to show my husband I still love him very much:)

Warning: the following contains huge amounts of butter.
