York Peppermint Brownies
After baking these fabulous chocolaty wonders, our apartment smells like Christmas: mint and chocolate. I've seen quite a few recipes for Reeses PB cup brownies, Symphony chocolate bar brownies, and I thought to experiment with York Peppermint Patties. The result: ooey gooey fudgey minty brownies. The mint flavor is apparent, but not overpowering.
I think one of the worst/most disappointing thing to eat is a cakey, dry brownie. If I wanted chocolate cake, I would have asked for chocolate cake. If I'm going to eat a brownie, it should have this texture. Heavy, rich, heavenly.
Ingredients: -1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips -1/2 cup butter (1 stick) -2 large eggs -1 cup sugar -1 tbsp cocoa powder -1/2 tsp salt -1 cup flour -3 york peppermint patties
1. Preheat oven to 350, and grease an 8x8x2inch pan.
2. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter and chocolate chips over med-low heat. Once melted and blended together, set aside to cool slightly.
3. Corsley chop the three patties, and divide into half. 4. In a large bowl, mix eggs, sugar, cocoa, and salt.
5. After cooling for a few minutes, add 1/2 of the chopped peppermint patties to the melted butter/chocolate. Stir to incorporate and melt. Add mixture to bowl.
6. Stir in flour, and pour into greased pan. Sprinkle the second 1/2 of the chopped peppermint patties evenly on top of the batter.
7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
