Christmas Brownies

After baking the Christmas fruit cake, I had some soaked fruits left over and I made these brownies with it. These brownies have a rich and deep flavor to it because the fruits are soaked in grape juice. I usually soak my fruits in grape juice but if you have fruits that are soaked in rum then the taste of these brownies will be far superior and richer!

8. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Then remove and slice.

Christmas Brownies

1. Do not over bake the brownie. 
2. Adding some flour to the soaked fruits will prevent it from sinking to the bottom but if fruits are heavily soaked then it will sink nevertheless.
3. You can add some chopped nuts as well.

Until next time,
