Preheat your oven to 350°F and line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients.
Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add in your wet ingredients. Mix the batter just until it's moist and well combined.
Gently fold in your chocolate chips. You can also fold in half of your candy cane if you'd like, or save the whole thing to sprinkle over the top. I like to sprinkle mine over the top for a festive look.
Add your batter to your prepared baking pan, and sprinkle the top with the crushed candy cane.
Bake your brownies for about 45 minutes. Depending on the brand of flour you use, the baking time will vary. I start checking mine at about 20 minutes. A cake tester should come out with a bit of batter on it, but it shouldn't be raw.
Once the brownies are cooked through, let them cool in the pan on a wire baking rack.
