mint brownies

In dessert on January 7, 2010 at 2:12 pm

these tips come from my current favorite tv food personality, john barricelli from everyday baking on pbs. “try our delicious mint brownies… any day of week!”

start by prepping your pan. a small piece of parchment will help you get these (or any) brownies out of the pan easier.

then prep your peppermint patties. and by “prep” i mean take off all the wrappers in a 10 ounce bag and taste a few. for quality control.

then mix up your brownie batter.

i used to have such a stick up about using cake mix, but you know what i’ve learned? sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, something is better than nothing and it’s the thought that counts. so go ahead, cut a corner! make sandra lee proud.

pour half the batter into your prepared pan

and “shingle” the patties across the batter.

then pour the rest of the batter over the patties. (i think i put too much on the bottom because i didn’t have quite enough to cover the patties on top, but the end result was still good. i’d probably rather have too much batter on the bottom than not enough.)

bake according to package instructions (about 25 minutes) and lift out easily with parchment “handles” once they have mostly cooled.

let cool entirely before cutting.
