TWD- York Peppermint Brownies

Photobucket
I love brownies. If I were Will Ferrel's Elf I would have brownies as a food group like his "Candy, candy corn, candy canes, and syrup"- "Cookies, Cheesecake, Brownies, Lasagna (oh and Strawberrries of course!)"  Alas, my life/diet is not made up only of brownies and cookies but you might think so from my blog! These brownies were great to add to my reportoire. Quick, delicious, almost even refreshing with the York Peppermint patties. They were also pretty flexible. I was out of baker's chocolate so I subbed in cocoa powder, a little extra milk chocolate (mixing everything up), and it all turned out. Thanks Dorie- you're brilliant.

PhotobucketGet the recipe from Karen and make these stat. It'll ease the heat of the summer, I promise. And let me know what your favorite food groups would be. Hopefully I'm not the only one with dessert issues.

PS Did you know tomorrow is French Independence Day? Come back tomorrow for our Bastille Day menu. Oh, and bring some butter. I'm making Dorie and Ina's recipes so you'll need it!

One of my favorite food groups is sweet yeast rolls. Your brownies look good too.

Mary said...

Love the big chunks of peppermint patties in your brownies. My favourite food groups: cake, more cake, custardy things, pie, maple syrup and fruit. At least one is a real food group!

Pamela said...

There's nothing like peppermint and chocolate! Your brownies are great!

And your brownies are just more proof that I did screw up. The patties just melted all over the place into a sticky mess. Funny thing is, they are still getting eaten! Yours look perfect.
Chocolate is definitely a food group for me. ;)

I love how you can see the chunks of mint in your brownies! Glad they were a hit too.
I love that part of Elf when he is talking about sugar.

Dairy, meat, bread and . . . brownie. What a hit - these look wonderful - so glad you enjoyed them! Mint and chocolate are definitely a great combo.
