Ingredients
Brownies
  • 195 g Unsalted Butter
  • 195 g Dark Chocolate
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 275 g Caster Sugar
  • 90 g Plain Flour
  • 35 g Cocoa Powder
  • 100 g Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 100 g White Chocolate Chips
Decorations
  • 10 Candy Canes
  • 150 g Green Candy Melts
  • Sprinkles
  • Sweets
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan and line a 9″ Square baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. Melt together the Butter, and Dark Chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water, on the microwave for 1-2 minutes until melted. Leave to the side to cool to room temperature!

  3. Using an electric whisk/stand mixer, whisk together the Eggs & Caster Sugar for a few minutes until the colour has turned pale, is very mousse-like, and is double the original volume of the amount of eggs + sugar! You will know it's done because when you lift the whisk up out of the mix it should leave a trail for a couple of seconds before disappearing!

  4. When whisked, pour the cooled chocolate mixture over eggs and fold together carefully. It might take some time, but be patient – you don’t want to knock out the air you made up on the previous step!

  5. Once completely combined, sift the cocoa powder and plain flour on top of the chocolate mix and then fold together again – still be careful to not knock out the air!

  6. Once combined well, fold through the chocolate chips and pour into the prepared tin – bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes! Once baked, leave to cool in the tin completely.

  7. Once cooled, cut the brownies into the tree shapes – I cut the tray in half, and then triangle the two halves – and eat all the offcuts. Carefully insert the Candy Cane sticks into the base of the brownies (like shown!)

  8. Melt the Green Candy melts and drizzle over in a zig-zag, and then decorate with some sweets/sprinkles!
