Junior Mint Brownies
Recipe By: Cooking Light
Servings: 16
Cooking spray
1/4 cup butter
3 ounces Junior Mints -- about 32
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 large egg
1 large egg white
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Combine butter and mints in a 2-cup glass measure; microwave at high 30 seconds or until soft. Stir until smooth, and set aside. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour, soda, and salt in a bowl. Combine sugar, cocoa, egg, and egg white in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add mint mixture; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean; cool completely on a wire rack.
Note: Two large (1.5-ounce) mints or 6 miniature chocolate-covered peppermint patties (such as York) may be substituted for 32 Junior Mints.
