York Peppermint Brownies… Oh Yes.

with 14 comments

**********UPDATE 1/30/2013: First I’d like to say a great big huge THANK YOU for reading Sugar Dish Me; the response on this post has been great!! Second… many of you have left comments and sent emails with questions about this recipe, and while I have addressed those issues specifically to each individual, I wrote an updated post (with better photos, including the finished product!!) to help. Several readers have had trouble with the peppermint patties busting through the top of the brownies while baking- advice on that is included. You can find the updated post HERE.

I have been crazy stupid busy with last minute shopping, wrapping, and of course baking. Also Chad and I narrowly missed being run over by an extremely aggressive old lady with a shopping cart full of ugly Christmas garbage yesterday, so you can understand my minor preoccupation and lack of recipe posts.
I’m sorry!!!
To make it up to you I submit my favorite last minute Christmas idea to date: York Peppermint Brownies. Oh yes. I did that.

Make brownies.
My favorite brownie recipe is here:
Pour half of your brownie mix into the prepared pan and then line up bite sized York Peppermint Patties.

Pour the rest of the batter over the brownies.



Merry Christmas!!!!

  1. I’ve been making these for years now. It’s the only way to make peppermint brownies. 🙂

    • There is a special place in my heart for York peppermint patties; they make a brownie special the way no peppermint extract can. Also… you can snack on them while you bake. Bonus.

  3. o.m.g. think I gained 5 pounds drooling over your pictures! question – do you have to alter the baking time or temp due to the patties?
    thanks for sharing! found you on pinterest 🙂

    • Hi Suzie! I don’t alter the baking time or temp to account for the peppermint patties, but I like my brownies a little on the fudgey/undone side. Just watch ’em closely and take them out when the consistency is how you’d normally like your brownies to be 🙂

  4. when baking brownies, watch for them PULLING away from the sides of the pan, as soon as you notice them doing that.. Take them OUT, they are DONE!

  6. These were super easy. I used the “cake like” recipe on the box and baked min in a muffin tin for 25 minutes.

  7. Would love to try this but cannot get peppermint patties in Spain – could I substitute 2 after eights?

    • I had to Google after eights… omg how have I never had those before? They look amazing. They are sort of thin though, right? I’d still just lay them across the brownie batter in a single layer (just like with a peppermint patties), cover with the remaining batter, and bake accordingly. Thanks, Lesley!
