TWD: Brrr-ownies

by Holly on July 13, 2010


Tuesdays with Dorie this week was a pretty lucky pick for me since I just made these brownies a few weeks ago for a friend to celebrate the birth of her first baby – she is a peppermint patty lovin’ fiend.  I knew the brrr-ownies time would come someday, so I went ahead and took pictures then VOILA! There time is already here!


The brownies were much like most other brownie batters, with the addition of chopped up peppermint patties.  Many other bakers ran in to problems with the peppermint patties melting into goo and disappearing in the batter.  I’m not sure why this didn’t happen to me, but I did make sure to chop my candies in fairly large pieces for the most part – I really wanted there to be chunks of candy in the brownies.


These brownies were a hit with my friend and here at our house, so thanks go out to Karen at Welcome to our Crazy Blessed Life for choosing this one! Make sure to check out the TWD Blog for more brownie posts!

I loved these when I made them. I put some in the freezer to stop myself from eating them all but then I found out I actually liked eating them straight out of the freezer too!

These look perfect! What a great gift! The pictures are wonderful–you can really see the texture and the chunks of peppermint patties in the brownies.

If I make these again, I'm going with big chunks of candy. Looks great!

Good thinking – I cut mine small (for some reason) – but love the bigger chunks! Glad your friends enjoyed them – they WERE wonderful brownies!

Your brownies look so good! I think I'll cut the peppermints into bigger chunks next time I make them. Loved this recipe!
