Cooling Time 10 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 16 brownies


  • 1 Propane Oven


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt omit if using salted butter
  • 1/3 cup crushed candy canes


  • Preheat your propane oven to 350°F. While the oven warms, grease a 8x8-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, and then add the vanilla extract and half of the crushed candy canes. Mix until smooth and well combined, removing any lumps.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
    Pro-tip: Don’t over mix the batter as air bubbles may cause the brownies to become more cakey than fudgy.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
  • Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs.
    Remember, a slightly under baked brownie is the key to a fudgy texture!
  • Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, Top with the remaining crushed candy canes. Transfer brownies to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled completely, cut into 16 squares.
