These brownies rock!! I've had this recipe for a long time, and the original recipe actually calls for 1 1/2 c. MELTED butter or margarine. I prefer to use butter, so this may help to alleviate the sticking on the bottom of the pan. Also, I usually push the peppermint patties into the first layer of mixture, then top with the rest, so they won't poke through in cooking. Other than that, this is a good time, and I hope this helped!! :)

I don't know what went wrong with these. 55 mins was way too long in my oven. I had to take it out after 25 mins. The brownie wasn't moist, kind of dry and the peppermint patties didn't melt. It was just a peppermint patty stuck inside a dry brownie.

Everyone has raved about these brownies each time I've made them. A few suggestions that have worked for me: four eggs work fine. Make them in two square pans instead of a 9x13. Don't bake them the whole time - they'll burn. And, most important, use YORK patties -- the cheapo ones I bought at Costco melted into a gooey mess and tasted strange.

I have made these for years -- always my husband's request for Father's Day and birthdays. I always make them in a metal 9x12 cake pan and I only put enough batter on the bottom to cover the pan (thick, but less than half the batter on the bottom) -- it always seems to require more than half the batter to cover the peppermint patty layer. When in doubt, undercook! You can almost never get an accurate toothpick reading because of the peppermint brownies, so I generally take them out when the edges start to crisp and the middle is set when I give the pan a giggle. I also think it helps not to overbeat the batter. Too much time in the mixer or the oven will make them dry and cakey, at which point they're really not worth eating. But a good, gooey center underneath that crisp, flaky top layer? Absolute heaven.

I love these. Of course they are better from scratch, but I ALWAYS have brownie mixes and a bag of yorks (I buy the regular size for cheap after Christmas) on hand. Prepare 2 boxes of mix as directed, then follow this recipe from step 3... great for those last-minute occasions when you need something yummy quick.

These had a rich dark appearance, great gooey texture, and a refreshing mint flavor. Make sure you watch them the last 15 minutes or so of baking - I took mine out about 10 minutes before the recipe said to because they were getting a little crispy around the edges. Very good!

I didn't follow the brownie part of this recipe (I'm lazy...I used a box), but am rating the concept, anyway to show how diverse the recipe is; you could use it w/any brownie recipe. What a simple way for a creme de menth type brownie. Be sure to fully cover your patties w/brownie batter and make sure the patties aren't touching the sides of the pan. THANKS for a great recipe, Pam (next time, I'll use your brownie recipe, too)!

Brownie was very good and mildly minty. I tend to like brownies 'fudgy' as opposed to 'cakey'. These were a bit 'cakey' for me so next time a will try 4 eggs to see if that helps. I did spray the pan with nonstick spray to avoid the trouble getting them out of the pan that other reviewers were having.
