Candy Cane Crush Brownies and Icing

Makes 20-30 mini brownies // Prep Time: 15 minutes // Cook Time: 12-14 minutes


For the brownies:

  • 2 Perfect Spoonfuls of DAVIDsTEA Candy Cane Crush tea
  • ½ cup hot water
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • pinch salt

For the icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • crushed candy canes or peppermint candies


    Preheat oven to 350 F.

    Steep tea in ½ cup hot water for 6 minutes, then strain and set aside.

    In a microwave-safe bowl, add butter and unsweetened chocolate. Microwave on high at 20-second intervals, stirring often until chocolate is melted.

    In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until well incorporated. Slowly whisk in chocolate mixture, vanilla and 2 tbsp of brewed tea. Then fold in flour, cocoa powder and salt.

    Add batter to a mini muffin tray 1 tbsp at a time and bake for 12-14 minutes. Brownies should appear slightly underdone.

    In a bowl, combine sugar, salt, ½ cup of melted butter and ¼ cup of brewed tea and mix until ingredients are well incorporated.

    To make the icing, whisk together powdered sugar, butter and 2-3 tbsp of reserved tea until icing reaches a smooth and spreadable consistency. Pipe over cooled brownies and top with crushed candy canes.
