Ever since I tried the Symphony brownies I’ve been thinking about other quick and easy ways to spice up plain old brownies.

Not that I don’t love plain old brownies.

After all, they’re chocolate.

But since I had the weekend to myself with no mint-haters around I decided to indulge in a little York-inspired deliciousness.

This is about as simple as it gets.

Here’s what you’ll need for this minty creation:

Yep, pretty straightforward.

Box of brownies (or homemade if you’re ambitious)
Some York patties (I used two of the snack packages and it was perfect)

Mix up the batter according to the package, pour half in a greased pan, layer the mint patties, then top with the remaining batter.

Bake according to package directions, cool, and enjoy the chocolate minty-ness.

I’m not sure why they look undercooked, but they weren’t.

And if you’re a mint lover you will definitely enjoy these.

However, just to make my husband happy, I’m going to admit something that I’ve recently discovered about myself.

I think my love affair with mint is coming to an end.

I still like it.
I just don’t love it.

Kinda makes me sad.
