Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Makes: 24 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp McKenzie’s Baking Powder
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 60 g butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 100ml thickened cream
  • Extra 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 6 candy canes, crushed

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200oC (180oC fan-forced)
  2. Line 2 large oven trays with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Stir through the sugar and chocolate.
  4. Using a fork, whisk together the eggs, butter and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to stir evenly.
  5. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on the lined oven trays about 5 cm apart. Gently press down to slightly flatten. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 10-12 minutes or until just cooked.
  6. To make ganache icing, in a small saucepan over medium heat, carefully heat the cream. Bring just to the boil. Place chopped chocolate into a heat proof bowl and pour over hot cream. Allow to stand for 2 minutes and then whisk until smooth.
  7. Dollop ganache over biscuits and sprinkle with crushed candy cane.
