Ingredients

  • 300g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 220g Kerrygold butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 300g light muscovado sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 100g pecans, roughly chopped
  • 100g dried cranberries
  • Icing sugar, to serve

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir gently until smooth then set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Combine the chocolate and butter mix with the egg mix, then gently fold in the flour, mixed spice, pecans, and cranberries until fully incorporated.
  5. Pour into the prepared tin then bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the brownie is firm to the touch.
  6. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then place on a wire rack until cooled completely.
  7. Once cool, cut into squares and dust the tops with icing sugar. To be extra festive you can use a Christmas stencil to dust the tops with icing sugar!
