Peppermint Patty Brownies

  • Ok this has to be hands down the best brownie recipe I have ever made!!

    These decadent dark chocolate peppermint patty brownies are super delicious!!  They are thick and fudgy and have just the right amount of mint to compliment.

    Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!!  Yeah!

    I have never really had luck with making homemade brownies.  They just never tasted like brownies but more like cake to me.  They didn’t have that thick fudge factor I was looking for.  So I usually use box brownie mixes, but this beats them by a long shot!!

    These peppermint patty brownies have it all.

    They have that thick, rich fudginess I was looking for and the peppermint patty adds a nice refreshing burst in the middle.
