Tuesdays with Dorie: Brrrr-ownies

brrr-ownies post in pan square

These peppermint patty-studded brownies are sure to send your sweet tooth into nirvana. They are minty, dense and very chocolaty.

Perhaps you’ve heard me talk about the TWD blog before.  It’s fun and educational to read through my fellow bloggers’ baking experiences.  Every week I learn new things.  For example, I read that these brownies can cause you to have a baby.  Holly said so here although she retracted her amazing assertion later. Mary used Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of peppermint patties.  Can’t wait to see how those turned out.  Some people had trouble with the patties melting into glue (delicious glue they claimed) with major stickage problems.  I say thank goodness for non-stick aluminum foil.

Meanwhile, if you are a self-described peppermint patty fiend like Ms. Kate, get the recipe from Karen of Welcome to our Crazy Blessed Life.

If you are a brownie recipe collector you might want to take a look at these variations…

Yours look nice with the white bits of mint. I had a mint-glue situation, but they tasted good!

Beautiful photos, as usual. The Problems & Questions is always helpful, especially since I don’t usually bake until last minute.


Margaret July 14, 2010 at 6:25 pm

I think I must have baked mine too long. All of my mint disappeared into the ‘sock hole’ somewhere. The taste was there tho. Those look perfect. And very photogenic.

Yum! Those big minty chunks look delish!

Thanks for the link to recipe. Brownies are my favorite dessert and I will definitely try this recipe with mint. Can’t wait to taste them 🙂 Chocolate addict

LOL – I hope we don’t have a baby epidemic in the group now! Your brownies turned out great, and I liked them too.


Susan July 13, 2010 at 12:23 pm

Great looking brownies. You must have left your pieces larger than I did. These are a fabulous brownie, even with peppermint patties in them. 🙂


Kayte July 13, 2010 at 11:26 am

For some reason, I thought this week everyone’s brownies would look exactly the same….such fun to visit about and see all the variations! Yours look wonderful.


Karen July 13, 2010 at 11:13 am

Your brownies look delicious and I love how your linked to different peoples experiences! 🙂 Thanks for baking with me this week!


Jules July 13, 2010 at 10:59 am

Yours look so moist and fudgy! Yum!


Katrina July 13, 2010 at 9:27 am

Ooh, see, yours look like nice, thick, normal brownies, with a goo of mint here and there. Mine tuned into an ugly mess, but are still edible!


peggy July 13, 2010 at 9:22 am

Yours put mine to shame! I love the gooey-ness of yours. I will have to try mint next time. Maybe my using the peanut butter cups made the texture different.


cindy harris July 13, 2010 at 9:08 am

These were wonderful!


Flourchild July 13, 2010 at 8:56 am

Im glad you liked the recipe. I loved it too!Tthe mint was a welcome flavor to some yummy chocolate!


Valerie July 13, 2010 at 8:46 am

Deliciously messy, minty, and fudgy! Perfect brrr-ownies. 😀

Now, I’ve seen your lovely figure and cannot imagine that you eat things like these very often. However, my husband will adore these (as will the minxes) so I am very grateful for the recipe!


Kimberly July 13, 2010 at 8:05 am

Your brownies look great! I ended up with a sticky mess which will soon find it’s way to my ice cream maker!


Chaya July 13, 2010 at 7:48 am

These look fantastic. I love the way the mint shows itself on top of your brownie.


Ellie July 13, 2010 at 7:31 am

Your brownies look delicious!! Now I want to try them with Reese’s too.


pamela July 13, 2010 at 7:14 am

Now that is what I was hoping my brownies would look like. Although they didn’t, they still were quite the tasty treat.


Mary July 13, 2010 at 6:38 am

I love the look of the white mint filling on top of your brownies. It is fun reading the P&Q, isn’t it? I’m happy to report that peanut butter cups work very well in these, but I need to make the original version, and soon!


Clivia July 13, 2010 at 5:07 am

So this is what they’re supposed to look like. Great job, Romaine!


Jennifer July 13, 2010 at 4:31 am

Wow…your brownies look AMAZING! Mine didn’t turn out that nicely!


Paula July 13, 2010 at 4:02 am

oh, that must be sooo delicious!

Have a nice day!



mike July 13, 2010 at 2:54 am

I just realized I didn’t subscribe to this P&Q….. but I should have kept larger pieces of mint (like yours) – those were the best part! I also used a larger pan which gave me “thin mints”. Yours are nice and thick and brownie-like! Good thing these are easy to whip up!
