  1. Make brownie batter according to packaged directions. Stir in 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Bake and set aside. 

  2. Spray a 9x13 rectangular pan with non-stick cooking spray and spread cookie dough along bottom to create an even layer. Bake according to packaged directions, until edges are golden brown. Set aside to cool. 

  3. Cut any harder crispy edges off the brownies. Scrape the rest of the baked brownies into a large bowl. Carefully mix cream cheese into brownies until its generally uniform in color. Scoop brownie mixture onto baked cookie dough. Smooth the top.

  4. Over a double boiler, melt white chocolate and the other teaspoon of peppermint extract. Spread melted chocolate over brownie. Top with crushed candy canes. Place in refrigerator until chocolate has hardened. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days.
