Christmas Tree Brownies

A good friend made this for her daughter’s Christmas party at Mother’s Day Out.  Super cute little treat!  The kids absolutely LOVED them!  And her little girl was so excited to have them and pass them out to all the kids.  This would be a really fun Christmas activity to do with kids as well.  Kids always love decorating treats!

Brownie Christmas Trees

Ingredients

Box brownie mix

Green icing (or vanilla icing with a few drops of green food coloring)

Sprinkles, mini m&m’s, etc. for decorating

Candy Canes, broken

Directions

  • Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Line 9-inch square pan with foil so foil extends about 2 inches over sides of pan. Grease bottom only of foil with cooking spray or shortening.
  • Make and bake brownie mix as directed on box. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove brownie from pan by lifting foil; peel foil away. To cut brownie into triangles, cut into 3 rows. Cut each row into 5 triangles, see diagram. Save smaller pieces for snacking.
  • Stir food color into frosting. Spoon frosting into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut off tiny bottom corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe frosting over brownies. Sprinkle with decors.
  • Break off curved end of candy cane; insert straight piece into bottoms of triangles to make tree trunks.
