Sorry, no pic, but the taste is what is impressive about the brownies I just made. They were soooooo good! Just whip up a brownie mix, put half in the pan, then place patties (either minis or full-size), and cover with remaining batter. My aunt pointed out that you could probably do this with Reese's peanut butter cups, too, or any other kind of candy bar.

Mmmm. I made a Chocolate Mint Cake a few weeks ago that tastes just like Andes Mints. It's a little more complicated than your recipe, but I bet they taste alot like each other - great.

1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 drops green food coloring

1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
In a bowl, combine the frosting ingredients until smooth. Spread over cooled cake.
For topping, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir in extract. Spread over frosting. Refrigerate until set.

that sounds delicious! my bf loves it with reeses cups in between....but his favorite he makes me make for him all the time is just to make a batch of brownies as usual....hten right after i take them out of the oven i put andes mints on top.......then i wait about 5-10 minutes and swirl the candy around with a spoon or butter knife to get a cool marbley effect!   he loves them!  for his birthday i brought them to his work and he was mad cuz he didnt have any to take home later LOL!

My students gave me like 3 bags of peppermint patties for my birthday (they're my favorite candy)! Now I something to do with them besides putting them in bowls all over the apartment.

I often make brownies like that for parties or potlucks.  It's quick, easy, and always a big hit.  I've put slices of Snickers, Milky Way, Almond Joy, and several other sorts of candy bars on top, and everyone loves them.  I always cop to using a mix, but who cares?  I'm going to try the peppermint patties next time for sure!

I own power tools, and I'm not afraid to use them!

I'm gonna try the Andes Mint thing, great idea!! I just made my second batch of the York peppermint patty ones recently and they were just as good as the first time. However, I did try Reese's Peanut Butter Cup brownies recently and I personally thought they were disgusting...so did my boyfriend Sad. Something happened to the peanut butter in the oven; it became very bitter.
