January 2, 2013 by 22 Comments

I hope you’re not too tired of sweets, because there is one more brownie recipe I would like to share with you.  I love Peppermint Patties. It’s somewhat of a guiltless pleasure that I enjoy on my way home from the grocery store.  So when I came across this terrific recipe for Peppermint Brownies that included Peppermint Patties I thought I give it a try.

Peppermint Brownies


3/4  Cup Hershey’s Cocoa

1/2  tsp. baking soda

2/3  cup butter or margarine, melted and divided

1/2  cup boiling water

2  cups sugar

2  eggs

1-1/3  cups all-purpose flour

1  tsp. vanilla extract

1/4  tsp. salt

16 to 17 small York Peppermint Patties, unwrapped and coarsely chopped


Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

Stir together cocoa and baking soda in large bowl; stir in 1/3 cup butter

Add boiling water, stir until mixture thickens.  Stir in sugar, eggs and

remaining 1/3 cup butter; stir until smooth.  Add flour, vanilla and salt;

blend completely. Stir in peppermint pattie pieces.  Spread in prepared pan.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.

Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Cut into bars.
