If you follow With A Blast you should know by now that I love anything, especially food, in miniature size !

These Candy Cane Brownie Bites are just that, about 2 bites and it’s gone. A very good reason to have another one or five ..

A few days ago, I spotted some candy cane at our local Woolworths store and quickly grabbed a couple of containers.

Hardly any of our usual stores we go to, keep candy cane in stock at Christmas time.  Therefore when I find them, I grab them as if there is no tomorrow !

You would not find me eating a candy cane as is.  I like them crushed (fine, medium or rough) sprinkled over an actual treat.

However, I do like to use whole candy canes as a decoration.  Or to stir a hot chocolate drink, and then also the kids like to eat them whole (by kids I really mean, my daughter !).

This is a very basic Brownie recipe, moist, very soft and so very chocolatey.  You can also make them in a standard cupcake size – but adjust the baking time to around 18 – 20 minutes.

The added White Chocolate to the Frosting makes it not only holding up better and longer, but it also adds a very creamy, chocolate taste, which is wonderful with the slightly sourness of the Cream Cheese.
