You can't. Only cover it or replace it.

Or try and disquising it using coloured pencils, it might make it less conspicous, if that fails replace it but nothing to lose.

Someone managed to scrape through the brown paint on the wall of my friends lounge (he lived with his parents at the time) to the plaster beneath. Someone had the bright idea of colouring in the scrape with felt tip pen. It almost but not quite worked mainly due to the colouree being ipssed at the time.

I don't think you can remove the burnt area other than by cutting the burnt surface out. If you do that you will need a spare piece of worktop from which to cut a same size piece then glue it place. The repair would be visible and might not be any better than the burn mark.

If you have a router, then using round templates or a trammel, you can cut a new piece from spare worktop( if you have any), and cut the burnt piece away. If you use depth control as well you only need to route out the plastic, leaving the wood intact. Do the job well and its almost undetectable, depending on the worktop pattern or not. Its amazing how accurately even an amateur can work with a router. If you have plenty of spare worktop you might be able to practice, and you will probably find there are loads of books on routing in your local library if you are not an expert already.
Best of luck
