Our babe had to go back to the orthopedic doctor on Friday to determine if her hips were in proper alignment yet (a complication from her legs being up from being Frank Breech), which would mean she could stop wearing her hip brace at night. Unfortunately, her x-ray revealed that she still needs to wear it as her right hip is not yet growing properly. It’s such a bummer as it means 6 more months in the brace for her. She has grown accustomed to wearing it but I still feel bad that she has to. Wahhh!!

At least we are dealing with it now as it can result in arthritis and she could need surgery later on. AHHH!!! where is my tray of brownies?!?!?!

For real, I definitely needed one of these York Peppermint Patty Brownies on Friday. Too bad I made these guys a few weeks ago. wahhh again.

Ah mint, how I love thee. Thee, I love thee. I love that word.

But really, mint is great. And the chocolate and mint combo is thee best.

 I had a bag of York Peppermint Pattys taunting me. Those little patty’s were begging to be eaten. I was yelling at them back ‘NOOO!!’ I couldn’t open that bag since once I snagged one of those wrapped patties I would grab another and another. And another.

So I figured that using a bunch of them in brownies would help me not shovel them in my mouth as fast as possible. At least I could potentially resist shoveling brownies in my mouth a bit more than just the candies. Plus, sharing is caring so I was able to share with my coworkers. Brownies for everyone!

Grab a bowl, some peppermint patties, and you’ll soon be on your way to some mouth watering brownies. Okay, sure, you’ll need some more ingredients than just peppermint patties, but it will be worth a trip to the grocery store to make these brownies. I pinky swear ya!

    Hi! I’m in the middle of making these and they’ve been in 35 minutes but are super soupy in the middle. Have you had to go much longer? Added another 10 minutes but afraid to over bake. Not at high elevation or anything. I realize you probably won’t answer this in the next 10 minutes, but I see making a lot of these in the future, so thought I’d ask.

    It’s been a year since this post, so I hope your babe is free and clear of the brace! We had to discuss the brace possibility for my youngest, but were able to dodge it. All the best and thanks for sharing this recipe!

      hmmm, it’s my ‘base’ brownie recipe for most of the brownies I have on my site. It it will still be fudgy in the middle, but def not soupy. I haven’t had problems in the past with them but I can try again. I think I’d just keep on baking until just set in the middle.

      Glad you avoided needing a brace for your youngest. All is going well for us now but was such a bummer at the time.

        So I made something else right after I finished these and that was also soupy after the estimated bake time. Clearly this is an issue with my oven. These brownies took 49 minutes, and they turned out amazing. I’m so happy right now – thank you!

        Very happy to hear all is well now. I’m sure it was a huge bummer – little humans do not like to restrained from exploring the world!
