June Baking: Peppermint Patty Brownies

I didn't bake this month for my 2011 To-Do List, because I had so many goodies thrown my way for my birthday & then I started this Lemon Cayenne Detox which doesn't exactly allow me to indulge in chocolate, cakes, or cookies.But I definitely ate my fair share of baked goods throughout the month. And my favorite was the new Peppermint Patty Brownies that C is bringing home from work.

While I can't get the Blue Baker's recipe for those Peppermint Patty Brownies, I can definitively find a good substitute online. And I have to share it with you :)

In Coon Rapids, Minnesota, Clara Bakke adds a special ingredient to these sweet and fudgy brownies. A layer of mint patties provides the rich, refreshing surprise.

Peppermint Patty Brownies Recipe
  • 24-30 Servings
  • Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling


  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extact
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) chocolate-covered peppermint patties


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • Spread about two-thirds of the batter in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Arrange peppermint patties over top. Carefully spread remaining batter over patties. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (top will appear uneven). Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 to 2-1/2 dozen.

They look amazing, no? Once I'm off this Detox I'm definitely going to have a go and make some myself. Let me know if you try it out! I'll come over and eat some with you.


  1. These look delightful. I am eating light this week, but can't wait to try them in the future.
