Peppermint Pattie Brownies
I saw these and thought of the three things I had to bake for on Saturday - thus, why this is very nearly late. I had volunteered to bake for a Poker Tournament that we weren't going to - we even bought in (purchased a place at a poker table) just so we would seem to be supportive AND the cross country team was working out AND I had promised my Gospel Doctrine class I would bring treats today. So, baking away I went on Saturday.
This is where I found the recipe: http://www.howsweeteats.com/2012/11/peppermint-pattie-brownies/
I follow this blog because she is creative without being weird. And she can be very funny.
Here are my hints:
1. Make a box brownie mix if you are in a hurry. Cool it in the fridge and make them medium thin.
2. Really fluff up the peppermint layer. I didn't go quite far enough - it was still good - and when I put on the ganache it was flat. I almost wish I had done 1 1/2 batch of the peppermint, maybe next time.
3. I added twice as much heavy cream to the ganache as it called for so I could pour it over the individual brownies.
4. Thinner brownies are better. Since you have to refrigerate after you spread on the peppermint thick brownies get VERY fudgy. This isn't a bad thing but my GD class wanted milk.
Overall a very good recipe that was a nice change from frosted brownies.
