This is essentially a lovely chocolate brownie with lots of peppermint patties thrown in for good measure. It was easy to put together. I melted the chocolates and butter in the microwave and then stirred everything else intothe bowl. It was pretty darn easy. I mixed in a bunch of the chopped up patties, and I saved some to throw on top. I didn't realized until after I greased the pan that it was 9 x 9 and not 8 x 8. Ah well. I cut down on the baking time. Don't think I cut down enough.
The taste was really good. I liked the bittersweet chocolate with the sweetness of the mint candies. The edges had a dry texture, though. The middle pieces were much better. If requested, I would make these again.
Here's the whole pan just out of the oven. I kinda like the way the candy looks.
Thanks, Karen of Our Crazy Blessed Life for this week's pick.
