Peppermint Pattie Brownies

“Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and dance – each beautiful, unique and too soon gone.” – Deborah Whipp

Wow, it’s day number 5 in the 12 days of holiday baking, and each day of pastries has been beautiful, yummy and too soon gone! Today’s recipe is an oldie, but a goodie from America’s Test Kitchen. And this one, I must say, is a crowd pleaser. How can anyone go wrong with brownies that have peppermint patties baked inside? I know I can bake this brownie all year long, but like other Christmas memories, it seems to fade like a snowflake. For some reason I always forget about them until the holidays. Maybe it’s the peppermint that makes me think of them. And it’s no secret if you read yesterdays post, that I have a slight addiction for peppermint and chocolate. It’s probably in my waistlines best interest that I only make these during the holidays and I give away as many as I can.

The recipe calls for you to bake in an 8-inch square pan, and cut them into 36 brownie bites. I like keeping them small, because then each brownie will have some of the peppermint pattie visible. It’s the minty candy layer in the middle that makes these unique so you may as well show it off!


These can easily be packaged in a holiday box with tissue paper, or just as part of a cookie tray. I know that for each recipe I keep telling you to keep some for yourself, but I must warn you this brownie is dangerous. Every time I keep a bite, or two or maybe a row and next thing you know, I’m making a second pan of them.

I hope you enjoy these peppermint pattie brownies as much as I do. Give the recipe a try and let us know how they worked for you.

And if you have missed the other four days, we now have Special K Bars, Rocky Road Bark, Mexican Wedding Cookies, and Peppermint Bark.

    I love peppermint patties and it would be hard to not eat them before placing them in the brownies! But what a surprise it would be for guest! Sounds like a fantastic treat.

    I adore Peppermint Patties and I have since I first tasted them as a little girl. My grandpa gave me one and fully expected I wouldn’t like it, but I did!

      I love Peppermint patties. I enjoy freezing them and taking one out when I feel like a little snack.

    America’s Test Kitchen comes up with some of the most interesting and unique desserts. I’m notorious for struggling in the brownie department, but somehow I think this recipe might change all that.
