Fruit Mince Brownies

PREP: 25 MINS + 2 hrs fruit infusing time | COOK: 25 MINS | MAKES: 12 Squares

What you’ll need…

200g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), chopped

300g brown sugar

250g unsalted butter, chopped

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1 1/3 cups (200g) plain flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup (35g) cocoa, plus extra to dust

1/3 cup (85g) Sunbeam fruit mince

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla paste

1 cup (100g) Sunbeam walnuts, toasted & chopped


In 160 degree oven. Toast the almonds on a rimmed baking sheet until fragrant and turning lightly golden on the edges, about 6 minutes.

Transfer the nuts to a cutting board and roughly chop them.

Place the chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl over a pot of gently simmering water. Cook until the chocolate is almost entirely melted, stirring frequently.

Cover a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a silicone or rubber spatula to spread chocolate evenly over the centre area of the baking sheet—aim for about ¼″ thickness

Sprinkle the nuts evenly over the chocolate, followed by the cranberries. Lightly use your palms to press the toppings into the chocolate.

Place the pan on a flat surface in the refrigerator to set.

Once the chocolate is completely hardened, use your hands to break it into about 25 pieces. Serve immediately, or cover and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
