Easy Peppermint Brownies

Oh how I love E-Z P-Z recipes!

You've probably seen candy bar brownie recipes all over the net.  This one has only a few ingredients because I used a boxed brownie mix. 

If you have a favorite brownie from scratch, by all means, GO.FOR.IT!

I had some leftover Andes candy bars from the holidays, so I used them in between layers brownie batter. I suggest using  9" X 13" brownie mix, and bake it in a smaller pan, for a nice thick brownie with candy in between. 

Using MINT...these would be great for St. Patty's day, but I've
 seen recipes using Kit Kat bars, Snicker bars, Symphony candy bars...whatever turns your crank. 

Like I said....E-Z P-Z!  Enjoy!

PEPPERMINT BROWNIES 

1 9" X 13" (fudge) brownie mix
oil, egg, water to mix brownies
25 - 30 Andes mint candies

Preheat oven to 350. (or just follow directions on box mix for mixing and preheating). 

Spray a 9" X 9" pan (or a 7" X 11"...or any 'odd' size you have...to make a thicker brownie). 

Pour half the batter into the pan...lay the candies evenly over top of batter, then pour remaining batter over the candies, spreading evenly, or even pushing down a little to cover. 

Bake according to directions on pkg. Check to see if brownies are done by sticking a toothpick along the outside of the pan. (If you do that in the middle of the pan, you'll probably get a moist chocolate on the toothpick, and it will be difficult to tell if they're done.)

I like to remove mine from the pan before they get 'too' done, as I figure a little 'gooey' is better than a lot of dry.
