This might be quite a controversial statement to put on the internet but…

I don’t like mince pies

Ok so I said it, shock horror I know, but I have never liked them. I’m not really sure why, but they are not really my thing. What’s annoying is I always feel like I am missing out come Christmas time when everyone else is eating them. So this year I decided to change that and find something that was equally as good – A brownie mince pie! Brownies are one of my favourite desserts so it seemed the best way to move forward.

Prep time: 20-25 minutes

Cooking time: 25-30 minutes

    I honestly can’t believe that you don’t like mince pies.. It actually makes me question our friendship. These do look amazing though
