Fudgy Mint Brownies

Someone at work brought in some brownies with mint patties in them last week and everyone liked them. I decided to try my own version, which turned out really good. You only need a small piece of these, because they are really rich and unfortunately they are not calorie free! Fudgy Mint Brownies
2 boxes fudgy brownies (I used Duncan Hines)
eggs, oil and water as directed on brownie pkg.
1 pkg York peppermint patties
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare one box of brownies as directed on pkg. Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Unwrap mint patties and lay on top of prepared brownies. (24 in all; 6 rows of 4) Prepare second brownie mix as directed, then stir in mint extract. Pour over mint layer. Bake for 40 minutes. Take out of oven and frost immediately.
Frosting
4 tablespoons margarine
3 tablespoons milk
2 scat tablespoons cocoa
1/2 box powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Heat margarine, milk and cocoa, but do not boil. Remove from heat and pour into mixing bowl containing powdered sugar. Mix, then stir in vanilla. Pour over hot brownies. Enjoy!
* These received a 9 rating from my family - very good
