WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE Bars

Store bars at room temperature in an airtight container. They keep for 4 days after baking.

Can I use Quick Oats?

No, for this recipe you need to use rolled oats (also called old fashioned oats). Quick oats will change the texture of the bar.

Brownie Batter

Chop the bakers chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave by stopping and stirring the chocolate in 15 second increments. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter and sugar and whisk by hand until smooth.

Add in the eggs and vigorously mix 5 minutes. Doing this breaks down the eggs and gives the brownies that shinny crackle top. Mix in the vanilla and peppermint extracts.

Pour in the melted chocolate and whisk until mixture is well combined.

Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Using a rubber spatula mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and crushed candy canes.

Bake for 28-30 minutes or until edges are stiff and middle is set. Allow brownies to fully cool to room temperature in the pan before removing and decorating.

Decorating the Brownies

Once brownies are room temperature slice them into 16 pieces. Spread the pieces out on parchment paper so you can see each side of the brownie.

Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Do this by microwaving in 15 second increments and stirring in between.

Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag, or zip lock bag and cut a small corner off. Drizzle the chocolate over top of the brownies.

Sprinkle the extra crushed candy canes on top of the chocolate. Pop in the fridge for a few minutes to help set the chocolate, enjoy!

STORING THE BROWNIES

These brownies should be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. If stored properly these brownies keep well up to four days after baking.

TIPS FOR MAKING PERFECT Peppermint BROWNIES

  • Use room temperature eggs. They break down easier and allow them to blend better into the batter.
  • Once eggs are added to the mixture, whisk for a solid 5 minutes. This breaks down the eggs, adds air, and gives the brownies that perfect crinkle top.
  • Be sure to mix everything by hand.
  • It’s better to be under baked than over baked with brownies.
  • Let brownies fully cool to room temperature in the pan. The brownies continue to cook in the pan after being removed from the oven, removing and slicing them too soon will lead to too gooey brownies.
