Peppermint Brownies

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by evelynathens

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.

Top Review by AmbyDawn

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!
