Nutrition: per serving



  • 200 g Dark Chocolate chopped
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter
  • 200 g Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 100 g Plain Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 100 g Peppermint Chocolate chopped

For the Topping:

  • 100 g White Chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
  • Crushed Candy Canes for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan). Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin with parchment paper.
  • In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, melt the dark chocolate and unsalted butter together, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the caster sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until pale and fluffy.
  • Gradually pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, stirring until well combined.
  • Sift in the plain flour and salt, then gently fold into the chocolate mixture until just combined.
  • Stir in the chopped peppermint chocolate until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is set and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the tin before removing and transferring to a wire rack.
  • For the topping, melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir in the peppermint extract.
  • Once the brownies are cooled, drizzle the melted white chocolate over the top and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
  • Allow the topping to set before slicing into squares and serving.
