Peppermint Patty Brownies

These are brownies with York Peppermint Patties in them and they are so mintlicious!  Yes, I did just make up a word,  mint + delicious = mintlicious.  I've previously made Thin Mint Brownies and they were a hit too.  I made these peppermint patty brownies over the weekend for a BBQ and an afternoon of watching Michigan football.  In case you were wondering, Michigan won!   It was a big win for Michigan because they had lost to Michigan State since 2007!  How crazy is that?  These Peppermint Patty Brownies made the win extra special!  Enjoy!

Peppermint Patty Brownies

1 box brownie mix (I used Market Pantry 19.8 ounces fudge brownie mix.)
½ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
¼ cup water
12 peppermint patties, unwrapped
½ cup mini chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix brownie mix, oil, eggs and water to make a brownie batter.

Pour half the batter into the baking dish.

Top evenly with peppermint patties.

Pour remaining batter over the peppermint patties.  Use a spatula to spread batter evenly.

Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Makes 12 large brownies. (Hint:  Cut with a plastic knife.)
