Candy Cane Brownies Recipe

My preferred grocery store to shop at in our area is definitely Sobeys. We don’t have one in our town so I have to make the 15 minute drive over to Greenwood, NS, but it’s so worth it! They have an excellent selection of products and at good prices. I always pick up their free Inspired magazine when I’m checking out . The holiday issue is out right now and it showcases the new products at Sobeys as well as some delicious holiday recipes!

I ended up purchasing the ingredients to make these Candy Cane Brownies this past weekend. They turned out great! It’s easy to a regular brownie into a holiday treat just by adding some icing and crushed candy canes.
