  7. Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges are set and a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out almost clean with a few crumbs or bits of chocolate remaining. Do not over bake.
  8. Remove the pan from oven and cool completely.
  9. While brownies are cooling, melt chocolate and coconut oil together in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
  10. Drizzle the top of the cooled brownies with the chocolate and then sprinkle with chopped white chocolate and crushed candy canes.
  11. Cut with a sharp serrated knife.
