My sister and I love chocolate and peppermint, and we love baking. It started with some brownies, and creme de menthe. Then we just kept adding as many peppermint-y things as we could. Usually I make these brownies with a Betty Crocker brownie box or two, but this time I figured I'd try my hand at a real from-scratch recipe.

Step 1: Gather ALL the things!

Brownie Batter Things:
1.5 lbs Dark Baking Chocolate
1 lb Butter
1 tsp Salt
2 lbs Sugar
1/8 cup Vanilla Extract
1/8 cup Creme de  Menthe
8 Eggs
8 oz Flour

Extra Bits:
1 Bag York Peppermint Patties (must be York!)
2 Bags Peppermint Candies (the red and white ones)
2 Tubs of Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting (or Vanilla)
I&nbsp;<strong>love</strong> chocolate and peppermint. I could eat a whole pan of these!
I'm usually not a fan of peppermint treats, but these just look delicious!
Wow, those sound amazing!
