  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 16 miniature chocolate-covered cream-filled mint patties or 32 layered chocolate-mint candies
  • 3 tablespoons semisweet chocolate pieces (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium saucepan combine butter and unsweetened chocolate. Cook and stir over low heat until melted; cool.
  2. Meanwhile, line a 9x9x2-inch or 8x8x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan; set aside. Stir sugar into cooled chocolate mixture in saucepan. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with a wooden spoon after each addition just until combined. Stir in vanilla.
