  • 1 cup melted butter 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup granulated sugar ½ cup brown sugar 4 eggs, room temperature 1 cup all-purpose flour ½ tsp. baking soda Pinch of salt 2 tsp vanilla ½ cup mint chocolate chips Topping: ½ batch of Swiss meringue buttercream or your favourite frosting Food colouring Crushed candy cane (optional) Christmas sprinkles (optional) Instructions Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8 inch square pan. Set aside. In a stand mixer, add the butter, cocoa, sugars, and vanilla. Add one egg a time, mixing well between each. Sift together the flour, soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Pour into stand mixer and add chocolate chips, mixing until JUST combined. Pour the batter into greased pan and smooth out nicely. Place into oven and bake for about 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely. Turn out brownies. If the brownies stay intact, add desired coloured frostings into separate piping bags and cut off tip. Alternate colours across the brownies (see link in post for step-by-step photos.) Don't worry about neatness. Once completed, use a large, flat spatula to gently drag across the brownies to smooth out the colours and create a flat pattern. If brownies break coming out of pan, you can do the brownies individually. 3.5.3208
