Peppermint and chocolate are an inspired combination. I make these wonderful brownies with After Eight Dinner Mints because that's the brand available here, I expect any good quality chocolate-mint candy will do nicely.

I had some difficulties baking these brownies with consistency. Though I followed instructions and cooked at indicated temp. I found that the top layer was a little charred by the time the inside was done. ?? They were pretty good, just not pretty, once I pulled off the top layer. Will hopefully give it another go soon, as I love peppermints!

I love chocolate and mint and these brownies I enjoyed. Did not add the additional peppermint extract and gave the mints a rough chop before adding them to the brownie mixute. I lost track when counting the mints so added enough to pretty much cover the top. This would be a wonderful dessert topped with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, and more chopped mints.
