Peppermint Patty Stuffed Brownies

  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbs. flour

  • 2 tsp. baking powder 

  • 1 tsp. salt 

  • 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

  • 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate ( or bittersweet if you don't like your brownies too sweet) 

  • 4.5 oz. unsweetened chocolate 

  • 4 eggs 

  • 2 Tbs. vanilla extract 

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 bag mini peppermint patties, about 24 patties 

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x 13" baking pan with parchment paper, allowing a 2" overhang on each side. 

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. 

In a double boiler melt the butter, and both chocolates. Let cool slightly. 

In a separate large bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla,  and sugar.  Add the cooled butter and chocolate mixture and mix until well combined. Fold in flour and mix until just combined. 

Pour half of the brownie mixture into the prepared pan. Top with peppermint patties, about 24 of them. Pour remaining batter on top of peppermint patties and gently smooth into an even layer. 

Bake brownies for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out just barely clean. 

Let cool completely then cut into squares.
