Lightly crisp on the outside, and so creamy on the inside - you could swear you were eating a chocolate truffle! Bake it in a circle pan, cut it into wedges and you've created the perfect Christmas time dessert.
Cocoa powder can get quite lumpy, and if not mixed properly can remain in dry lumps in the batter. So sifting is always recommended whenever using cocoa.
To make individual Christmas trees, cut the cooled brownie into wedges, break off the hook of a candy cane and push in the straight end into the bottom of each brownie. Drizzle with some icing and add some sprinkles if you like!
