York Peppermint Patty Stuffed Brownies

Rows of York Peppermint Patties top the base layer of brownie batter.
Creamy peppermint patty centers are the perfect compliment to these fudgy brownies.
     I made these brownies when my brother and his family were in town visiting from Ohio. My nephew Zach LOVES brownies, and after finishing off a whole frosted pan with his brothers, I decided to make something different. I have seen some York peppermint patty stuffed brownies floating around the net, but I did not want to stray from my favorite brownie recipe. I simply poured half of the batter from my favorite recipe into the bottom of the cake pan, topped the base layer with meticulous rows of York patties, and smoothed the rest of the brownie batter over top.
These brownies taste great warm out of the oven, but they are much easier to cut into if you wait a couple of hours for them to cool first. The creamy peppermint centers make frosting unnecessary, although I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt if you are a frosting aficionado like myself
