Tuesdays At The Table - Perfectly Peppermint Brownies

Ladies, I'm back from Ft. Drum and will tell you all about it tomorrow.  I promise! 

But for now....
To me, the holidays mean minty foods.  Am I alone here?  I found this recipe in the Holiday 2009 Hershey's Cook Book and it's absolutely delicious.

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Perfectly Peppermint Brownies

3/4 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cups butter margarine, melted and divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
16-18 mini York peppermint patties, unwrapped (duh) and chopped

Stir cocoa and baking soda together in a large bowl.  Stir in 1/3 cup of butter, then add boiling water; stir until mixture thickens.  Add in sugar, eggs and remaining 1/3 cup of butter; stir until smooth.  Add in flour, vanilla and salt; blend well.  Mix in York pieces.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes in a greased 13x9 pan.  Cool completely and cut into pieces.
