York Peppermint Patty Brownies

My friend Holly brought these amazing York Peppermint Patty brownies to bookclub last month. They were so awesome that I thought I would try the recipe out. Holly told me that she found her recipe on the back of the baking bag (24 pieces) of Yorks. So, I went to the store thinking no big deal I'll follow the recipe on the back it will be simple. Well....the bag of 24 pieces I bought didn't have the recipe so I called Tim at home panicking and asked him to look up the recipe online (thank goodness for technology). The result was more of a peppermint and chocolate cake then brownies, but it was still really good. Soon I'll try to find the bag of with the real recipe and try it again. Hmmmm look forward to a second York Peppermint Patty Brownies post.
-24 small (1-1/2 inch) YORK Peppermint Patties
-1-1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter or margarine, melted
-3 cups sugar
-1 tablespoon vanilla extract
-5 eggs
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon salt

-Heat oven to 350°F.(325°F. for glass baking dish). Remove wrappers from peppermint patties. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Add eggs; beat until well blended. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; blend well. Reserve 2 cups batter. Spread remaining batter in prepared pan. Arrange peppermint patties about 1/2 inch apart in single layer over batter. Spread reserved 2 cups batter over patties. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack; cut into squares. About 36 brownies.
