How to do it

Brownies

[1] For this recipe for homemade christmas brownies, you’ll need a 25 x 30 cm / 10 x 12 in mould that you line with baking paper.

[2] Set the oven to 200° C / 390° F.

[3] Melt butter in a saucepan. Break the chocolate into pieces, put them in the butter and let them melt. Mix together flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Whisk egg and sugar light and airy. First add the flour mix to the egg/sugar mix, then the butter and chocolate mix.

[4] Pour the dough into the mould. Spread chopped walnuts over the dough and fry the brownies cake in the middle of the oven at 200° C /390° F  for about 15 minutes. Cool on a rack.

Tip: Brownies should be a little sticky in the middle.

Santa bubble-hats

[1] Use a gingerbread cutter to cut out pieces of the brownie cakes.

[2] Wash the strawberries and remove the stem. Stir vanilla sugar into the cream cheese till you got a slightly softer texture. Fill a piping bag with the cream cheese and spray a ring around the strawberries, which you have placed on the punched out piece of brownie cake. Also, remember to spray a small ball on top of the strawberry to make it look like a santa bubble-hat.

Tip: If you do not have a piping bag, use a regular plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag.
