12 Days of Christmas: York Peppermint Patty Brownies

I had some York patties leftover from Halloween and wanted to use them in some capacity. I turned to Pinterest and found this recipe — brownies + York patties? Yes yes yes, please! These are incredibly rich, so maybe cutting them into 1-inch squares would be the best way to go (instead of the giant brownies I created).

Print Recipe

1 cup butter
8 oz unsweetened chocolate
5 eggs
3-3/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1-2/3 cups flour
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 bags York Peppermint Patties

1. Line the bottom of a 9×13 pan with tin foil and cover with nonstick spray.
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.
6. Spread half of the batter into the buttered pan.
7. Unwrap your peppermint patties and line them up over the top of the bottom layer of batter.
8. Cover the patties with the second half of the batter.
9. Bake at 425 for 23 minutes. [This part can be 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.]
10. Cool on a wire rack and then refrigerate at least 6 hours.
