    This is a great recipe!! I won first place in a brownie bake-off and this is what I did that was not in the recipe: I used 16 mints, froze them for 10 minutes, then refrigerated them for 10 minutes and kept them there until I put on the first layer of batter. Next I put them in the oven at 325 F, and they baked for 45 to 50 minuets. Then I put the brownies in the refrigerator for maybe 20 minutes, cut them, put them back in the fridge for another 15 minuets and brought them to the bake-off.

    I have not been able to get this recipe to work for me. If the patties are at all cracked, the filling all melts and you can't see or taste the patties when you cut the brownies. I may try it one more time because others give it rave reviews.

    This is Christmas time favorite for our family at home and to bring to others. I usually double to recipe for one batch so the brownies are thicker.

    I made these for my mother-in-law, who loves mint. They were especially delicious.

    Hi tracyjw--I haven't tried these cookies, but I used to live in England and I know that, while there aren't York peppermint patties, Bendick's makes an incredibly rich and delicious (though less sweet) version of a peppermint patty. I think they're called Peppermint Cremes. The idea is that it's a very rich mint fondant candy center, covered in dark chocolate. Could work really well!

    Peppermint patties have a soft white mint-flavored cream center with a dark chocolate coating. This recipe uses the small coin-sized ones, about 1-1/2 inch in diameter. I won 2nd. place at our County Fair for these. Use the smallest patties you can find.

    To tracyjw: a peppermint patty is like a really big, round After Eight dinner mint. It's basically peppermint fondant that shaped into a round patty, then coated with plain dark chocolate.

    Can any one tell me what are peppermint patties, as i live in England and am not sure what they are. I am going to make these as they sound absolutely scrummy,

    this is by far the best brownie recipe i've tasted - and oh so easy to make; i don't even dirty a bowl, i make the entire recipe in a pot! the first time i made them, the peppermints melted and i could only taste them - not see them. since then, i've left out the peppermints.
