Christmas Brownies | Recipe

Tuesday, 16 December 2014

Hi all! So today I made my friends some brownies for Christmas, and unlike the title, they are not Christmas-y, they are just plain old brownies, but nevertheless they are delicious! I was wondering what to get my friends for Christmas, and not having a lot of money, I decided to bake them something (and with me loving brownies, this seemed the most sensible and yummy choice).

If you would like to know how I made these brownies (WHICH WERE DELICIOUS) the brownie recipe is here :)

If, like me, you just prefer if I gave you the instructions here, then here you go :)


- Serves: 20
  • 400g caster sugar (I used normal granulated sugar for mine, so don't worry if you don't have caster!)
  • 225g butter, melted
  • 60g cocoa powder (I didn't have any cocoa power so I used Hot Chocolate powder instead!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 60g walnut halves (I didn't use walnuts for my brownies, but whatever floats your boat)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4 
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, making sure you get rid of any lumps and bumps in the mixture.
  3. Once your mixture is done and is lump and bump free, place into your designated tin/tray (I used a square tray and lined it with grease-proof baking paper). If you are not using baking parchment/paper, make sure you grease your tin/tray with butter first!
  4. Place your tin/tray into the oven and wait patiently for 25-30 minutes. I know it's hard but it has to be done if you want scrummy brownies. 
  5. Once your brownies are cooked, place them on the side and wait about 5 minutes for them to cool down, you don't want to burn your mouth, THEN YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO TASTE HOW NICE THEY ARE! *gasp*
  6. Enjoy :)

I hope you enjoy!

Love, K :)
