Brownies with Holiday Flair.

When we think of holiday desserts, brownies is not what typically would come to mind. However, these Gingerbread brownies take brownies to a whole new level and they make a delicious holiday treat!


  1. 1 cup butter
  2. 1 1/4 cup dark chocolate
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  5. 3/4 cup Swany White flour
  6. 1 tbsp cinnamon
  7. 1.5 tbsp ginger
  8. 1 tsp cloves
  9. 1 tsp cardamom
  10. 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  11. 1 tsp baking soda
  12. 2 tbsp pistachio kernels
  13. 4 ounces white chocolate


  1. Set the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in a small pot and then add the chocolate. Allow it melt on low heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Whisk eggs and sugar util they are white and fluffy.
  4. Mix the flour, spices, baking soda and vanilla sugar in a separate bowl. Then, sift it in to the sugar-mix alternately with the melted chocolate and butter.
  5. Blend well, use a spatula to make sure you get everything. Sometimes there’s a little unblended mix left at the bottom of the bowl.
  6. Put some baking paper into a baking pan measuring about 9×13. Add the mix. Roughly chop the pistachios and sprinkle them over the cake, before cooking it for 20 minutes.
  7. Once it’s done, let it cool in the pan. When it’s cold, melt the white chocolate in the micro or over a waterbath, and sprinkle it over the cake. It won’t set straight away, it takes longer to stiffen/dry than dark chocolate.
  8. Cut the brownies into triangles and decorate!
