    I do something similar by placing Andes chocolate candies (individually wrapped) on top of the brownies immediately after they come out of the oven. Let them sit (and melt) for about two mins, then spread the melted minty chocolatey yumminess over the warm brownies. You can either cover entire top with the candies, or just a few, depending on how minty you want them.

    My brother bakes similar brownies, but he pours half the brownie mix in the pan, then adds a layer of York Peppermint Patties and the rest of the brownie mix. The fudgey, creamy, minty center is delicious!!
