St “Peppermint” Patties Chocolate Mint Brownies March 16, 2012

Our favorite Irish holiday is fast upon us which inspired me to hit the kitchen after devouring one of my favorite treats… peppermint patties.  Shortly thereafter I made a new discovery in the bakingisle that I just had to test out.  I hope you enjoy my quick and easy recipe just in time to make some gooey St Patricks Day treats!


You’ll Need:

1 Box of Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix

1 bag of Parsons Peppermint Patties (my personal preference)

1 Can of Duncan Hines Frosting Starter (Brilliant!)

1 Duncan Hines Chocolate Mint FrostingCreations Packet


Now grab your favorite brownie pan – my go to pan is the PerfectBrownie pan, especially for gooey creations such as these!



Chop up 17 peppermint patties and set aside.  Mix brownie mix as directed by the package.  Gently stir in the peppermint patties pieces and bake according to the directions on the brownie mix for the pan you have selected.  You may need to add 3-5 minutes to baking time due to the addition of the patties.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting and removing from pan.

Stir frosting packet into frosting starter as directed by packaging and top each brownie with a a healthy dollop using a 1″ cookie scoop.  Use remaining patties and top off each brownie as shown above.   Refridgerate to set brownie and frosting.  Enjoy and remember – calories don’t count on holidays!!!
