  • 12 candy canes


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 160Fan/180*C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

    6. Bake for 20 minutes until firm on top but still slightly squidgy. Allow to cool before slicing.
    *to make sure the candy canes look “perfect” still, bake the brownies without the candy canes and press them into the baked brownie once out of the oven.
