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
Your favourite shortcrust pastry (pre-made or homemade)
110g unsalted butter
85g unsweetened chocolate (finely chopped)
Pinch of salt
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla extract
95g plain or cake flour
95g chocolate chips
