  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges. Grease foil. In a small bowl combine 2/3 cup flour and 1/4 tsp. baking soda.

  • Stir 1 cup sugar into cooled chocolate mixture. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating with a spoon until combined. Stir in 1 tsp. vanilla. Stir in flour mixture just until combined. Spread batter in prepared pan.

  • For cookie dough: In a large bowl beat softened butter and shortening with a mixer on medium to high 30 seconds. Add remaining 1 cup sugar, the cream of tartar, remaining 1/4 tsp. baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Beat in remaining egg, remaining 1/4 tsp. vanilla, and the peppermint extract. Beat in as much of the remaining 1 cup flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour and the chopped mint candies.

  • Drop mounds of cookie dough over brownie batter. Bake about 30 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Use foil to lift out uncut bars. Cut into bars. Makes 20 bars.
