York Sensational Brownies

Brownies for my friend Julie for her birthday and also for my girls at church.  I changed the recipe up a bit since I didn’t have any York Peppermint Patties, I used Junior Mints instead.  They tasted great but the Jr Mints seemed to just melt and dissolve in the batter whereas when I’ve used the Yorks, they actually retain a peppermint patty layer through the brownie that you can see when you cut them up.

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, melted

3 cups sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

5 eggs

2 cups flour

1 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

24 small (1 1/2″) York Peppermint Patties, unwrapped (I used 2 4 oz boxes of Jr Mints)

Heat oven to 350.  Grease a 9 x 13 x 2″ pan.  With a spoon or a wire whisk, stir butter, sugar and vanilla together.  Add eggs and stir until well blended.  Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and blend well.  Reserve 2 cups batter and set aside.  Spread remaining batter in pan.  Arrange patties in single layer over batter, about 1/2″ apart.  Spread reserved batter over patties.  Bake 50 – 55 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.
