Chocolate Mint Brownies

I had to make a dessert for work for tomorrow.  This is a simple brownie recipe that is also delicious.

2 boxes of brownie mix (If you are going to bake in a square pan, get the smaller mix.  Or get the larger mix if you are going to bake in a rectangular pan.)
Items needed for the boxed mixes (typically oil, water, eggs)
Bag of mini York peppermint patties
Frosting (optional)

1.  Mix up one brownie mix as directed.  Pour in the pan.
2.  Open and break up the peppermint patties.  Place on top of the brownie batter.
3.  Mix up the other brownie mix as directed.  Pour on top and carefully spread.
4.  Bake for 45 minutes at 350.  (This is for a rectangle batch, would be less time for a square batch.  Just add a little time to what the box says since you have doubled the recipe.)
5.  Frost when cooled.

I frosted mine with Grandma Lewis's Homemade Hot Fudge sauce.  Yum!!  But I'm sure you could use any chocolate frosting or unfrosted brownies are also yummy.  Now if I can keep these boys out of the brownies until I can get them safely to work, we'll be in business....
