Thin Mint Brownies (mybakingaddiction)

4 oz unsweetened chocolate; coarsely chopped
3/4 c butter, cut into large cubes
1 1/4 c sugar
3 large eggs
1 t vanilla
1/4 t peppermint extract
1/4 t fine grain salt
1 c flour
10 Thin Mint Cookies, roughly chopped
Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce (opt)
fresh whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8 × 8″ baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and butter on medium (50% power) for 3 – 4 min or until butter is melted. Whisk until chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar and add in eggs, extracts and salt; mixing until thoroughly combined. Gradually add in flour and stir until just combined. Spread 1/2 of the batter into prepared pan. Add an even layer of Thin Mint Cookies and cover with remaining 1/2 of brownie batter. Bake for 30 – 35 min; do not over bake. Remove to cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before cutting. If desired, top with Hot Fudge Sauce and a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
