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

Ingredients
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


Directions

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.)
