York Peppermint Patty Brownies Recipe

Chocolate + Mint= a perfect combination, especially around the holidays! I am always looking for ways to dress up plain ol’ brownies and this is one of my favorites. You can either make these from scratch or use a prepared brownie mix- both ways turn out amazing. They are so good!

  • 1 cup butter
  • 8 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
  • 24 small York Peppermint Patties(one small bag should have 24, however I was ripped off and mine only had 23)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Grease a 9x13" baking dish.
  3. Melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate in a pan over low heat, stirring often. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla, salt and almond extract for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the melted chocolate mixture and flour. Mix until incorporated.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Spread half of the batter into the buttered pan. If you are using a kitchen scale, that is about 32 oz.
  8. Unwrap your peppermint patties and line them up over the top of the bottom layer of batter.
  9. Cover the patties with the second half of the batter.
  10. Bake at 425 for 22 minutes.
  11. Cool and then refrigerate at least 6 hours.
  12. Enjoy!


This could also be made with a boxed brownie mix. Follow the instructions on the box to make the brownies and substitute the batter for the homemade brownie batter.

**If you want thicker brownies, bake in a 9×9″ baking dish. You will have to bake them in the oven for a longer amount of time, but they will still be delicious!

  1. I made these last week and even though I'm not a huge fan of mint they were THE BEST brownies I've ever tasted. They were great right out of the oven as well as the fridge and room temperature. I put half in the freezer, take one out at a time, microwave for twenty seconds and they are still perfect. Think I will try them with other types of candy as well(I'm thinking peanut butter cups...yum). Thanks so much! Love your recipes!
  2. Could these be made in small muffins size pan with a small patty centered inside each small brownie bite? Why would a pan of these brownies crater as described by another reviewer..."if it can go wrong, it will go wrong" is too often my experience with baking! Thanks for any suggestions.
