Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Icing :
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 12 mini candy canes coarsely crushed

Method

In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt butter with chocolate until smooth. Remove from heat.

In large bowl, whisk eggs with sugar; whisk in chocolate mixture and vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa and salt; whisk into chocolate mixture to just blend. Spoon by 1 tbsp (15 mL) into foil-or paper-lined mini (1-1/2- x 1-inch/4 x 2.5 cm) muffin cups.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centres comes out with moist crumbs clinging, about 12 minutes. Let cool in pans on racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks and let cool.

Icing: Meanwhile, in bowl, beat together icing sugar, butter and milk; pipe or spread over brownies, leaving a little brownie showing around edge. Sprinkle candy canes over tops.
