This is the final recipe in my Spring Shower Post line up.
These brownies are super sweet and super rich. You will need to plan ahead a bit as they need to refrigerate for at least 6 hours. Leaving them in the fridge overnight is even better.
This recipe comes from my
wonderful sister Alli Cooksitup.

She is a treat making diva. All of her goodie recipes are exceptionally fabulous. She’s pretty exceptionally fabulous herself! 
York Peppermint Patty Brownies
Yield: 40 small brownies, they are very rich…cut them small
Time: 45 minutes + refrigerate overnight
1 C butter + 1T to coat the pan
8  -1 oz squares unsweetened chocolate
5 eggs
3 3/4 C sugar
2 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
1/2 t almond extract
1 2/3 C flour
1 C semi sweet chocolate chips
2 bags York Peppermint Patties (the generic brand has been known to make this recipe flop. I would advice buying the good stuff)
1. Line the bottom of a 9×13 pan with tin foil and grease it with butter.
2. Microwave the unsweetened chocolate and butter for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval. Keep cooking and stirring until the chocolate and butter are melted. Set aside.
3. In a mixing bowl (or in your stand mixer) beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla, salt and almond extract for 3-4 minutes.
4. Add the melted chocolate mixture and flour. Mix until incorporated.
5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
7. Spread half of the batter into the buttered pan.
8. Unwrap your peppermint patties and line them up over the top of the bottom layer of batter.
9. Cover the patties with the second half of the batter.
10. Bake at 425 for 23 minutes. This part is a little tricky. Stick a knife in the top layer of brownie and be sure that it comes out clean before you take them out of the oven.
11. Cool on a wire rack and then refrigerate at least 6 hours.

  1. Kimmie,
    I'm so glad you are going to try these! I bet you will love them. You just need the regular sized bags. Not the large bag. Sorry I don't know the exact size in ounces! Good luck! Let me know how they turn out.

  2. these came out doughy, ugh! could the flour and the sugar measurements be mixed up? sounded great but we are left confused as to what to do with our wet brownies. 🙁

  3. Anonymous,
    I'm so sorry your brownies turned out doughy and wet. That is so frustrating. The sugar and flour increments are correct in the recipe. It really has a lot of sugar! If you try again, I would cook them at 400 degrees for about 35-40 minutes. Don't take them out until you can insert a knife into the middle and it comes out clean. Some ovens take a bit longer to cook, my guess is that the cooking time listed above wasn't long enough for your particular oven. So sorry about them not turning out. That can really put a kink into things. Good luck!

  4. Great recipe. You were right about cutting them really small. They are very sweet and rich. I've enjoyed several other recipes that you have posted. Keep the recipes coming. 🙂

  5. Do I need to keep them refrigerated even after the allotted time? Since I doubt we'll eat 'em all tonight? Seems like not, since they don't have anything in them that should require constant refrigeration.

    1. Hey Roxanne,
      I'm not sure if a brownie mix would work very well. My thoughts are the batter (and then of course the dough) would end up being a bit too thin to support the peppermint paddy. I recommend sticking with the recipe.
      Good luck!
