Peppermint Patty Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

This uses my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe and combines peppermint patties.  They are chocolatey and minty and gooey as long as you don't overcook them and even better once they have cooled and set up.

Picky Palate

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
2- 12 oz. bags york peppermint patties

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.  Transfer half of dough into greased 9x13 baking pan, pressing evenly. Place unwrapped peppermint patties over first half of cookie dough. Place remaining half of cookie dough over peppermint patties, pressing to flatten dough. Bake for 20 minutes or until baked through. Be sure to Let the cookie bars cool completely before cutting into squares. Takes about an hour. Be patient, it is finishing setting up!!
