Eat it

I’ve received multiple requests for this recipe- I PROMISE you if you make these you will.

A. Love them

B. Gain 3 lbs

C.  Yeah, both.

Mint Chocolate Brownies

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled) (don’t roll your eyes, this stuff matters when you’re baking!)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 25 small peppermint patties  (make it 35, you’ll eat about 10 in the process)

1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Line an 8 inch square baking pan with foil, leaving an overhang on all sides.  Butter foil.  Set aside

2.  Place chocolate and butter in a medium heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of gently simmering water.  Stir occasionally just until melted.  4 to 5 minutes.

3.  Remove from heat.  Whisk in sugar and salt until smooth; whisk in eggs.  Gently whisk in flour and cocoa powder just until smooth. (careful not to over mix)

4.  Spread 1/3 of batter in prepared pan.  Arrange peppermint patties on batter in a single layer, leaving  a narrow border on all sides. Top with remaining batter, and smooth surface.  Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached.  45-55 minutes.

5.  Cool completely in pan.  Use foil to lift from pan; peel off foil and (after licking clean) discard.  Cut into 16 squares.  Eat 8 in one sitting.

  1. Oh no. Oh no no no. I’m headed to the grocery store tonight, so this? This is trouble for SURE.

  2. Ooooh! That sounds so good! Peppermint patties are my favorite; I buy them to give as treats to give out at school and end up eating the bag myself. Might have to make me some of these brownies tonight!!
