12 Days of Christmas | DAY 10: Peppermint Candy Cane Brownie Slice

I wanted to make a yummy Christmas treat to take to the in-laws place on Christmas day. So of course I had to trial it over the weekend ;) I got the inspiration from this over at "Our Best Bites". It's basically the exact same thing, except I changed the recipe a little bit. So either one would work fine.

The idea is that you make a rich choclate brownie base, a strong peppermint middle layer, then anothe rrich chocolate icing on top. It was so rich, yet so delicious. I see it as a win, cause that means I only have 1 (or two) pieces, rather then 10! It might even last longer then a few days in my fridge, but I will see...


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 250g melted butter
**Slice/Icing layer
  •  2 cups of icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 table spoons of milk
  • 2 tea spoons of peppermint essence
  • 1 drop of red food colouring
    **Note: The above ammounts will depend on how thick you want this layer
**Chocolate Top layer
  • 1 cup Icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons of milk


  1.  Melt butter (allow to cool for a few minutes) and add in sugar, stir contantly to combine.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, stiring each one through before the next
  3. Combine flours and cocoa in a bowl and stir together
  4. Add butter/sugar/egg mixture to dry ingredients
  5. Stir through until completly mixed
  6. Add in vanilla essence
  7. Transfer to an oven safe baking pan and cook for 35 minutes at 150 degrees
  8. Whilst brownies are cooking add slice/icing ingredients together in a bowl
  9. Stir through to desired consistancy (it needs to be like a thick cream)
  10. Once brownies are cooked remove from over and allow to cool COMPLETLY (very important)
  11. Spread evenly over cooled brownies and place in the fridge to chill again while you do the final choclate layer
  12. Next, combine the choclate icing ingredients together, this one you can have a little more runny. It helps to pour it over the middle layer and it doesn't need to be as thick
  13. Once the peppermint layer is slightly hard, pour over final chocolate icing
  14. Sprinkle on some smashed up candy canes and you are done!
