"I think these are my favorite brownies. I have tried the cheap peppermint patties, but the York Peppermint patties are the best. I have also tried peanut butter cups, but the peppermint patties are so much better."

"As others have said, I also had to bake mine longer than specified. I used Andes Mint instead of peppermint patties because family likes them better. I also cut down the sugar just a tad."

"Make this recipe a couple times a year--it's just too rich to make more often (but we'd like to!) We've also made it with peanut butter cups instead of peppermint patties. Just awesome! I do bake them about 45-50 minutes."

"I had the same difficulty as the previous poster--the patties sunk to the bottom and glued themselves to the pan. I'm hoping I can salvage it."

"I took these to a pot luck at work and they didn't last long. They are so rich that you could easily cut them into smaller bars and still be satisfied. If you don't like peppermint, then these bars aren't for you."
