Candy Cane Brownies

Another cute culinary gift you can give, are these mini brownies, smothered with ganache and topped with candy canes. You can make them cupcake size, or mini cupcake size I have done here.

They actually look more like puddings if you ice them when they are upside down like these ultimate choc puddings I made a few years ago. But my mini brownies domed too much so I served them right side up.

Also well received at work on Friday at social drinks, and they look cute as a button!

    Forget what these other two say, they are not too cute to eat. I’m happy to devour theirs. 🙂
