brownie chrismas trees1I love sweets. I have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone you’ll ever meet. Pete, however, is really good at not eating sweets. His only real weakness, though, is brownies. So of course, I like to bake brownies when I can, then wrap them in foil so Pete can take them to work with him.

Platefull Co-Op sent me a bunch of baking products, including Betty Crocker brownie mix, sugar cookie mix, frosting, two sets of Christmas sprinkles, Hershey’s kisses, and Heath bar chips. I also received a wire rack, plus Ziploc containers, which is a great way to cool and share cookies. That’s perfect for the holiday season.

I stumbled over a photo of brownie Christmas trees. They were so adorable. I saw a couple photos of them with stems (of pretzels, candy canes, and more), but I didn’t want that for mine. I don’t like anything in my brownies really. Most people are fans of brownies with nuts or chips or layers of icing, but I like mine as pure as can be. So when I made these simple brownie Christmas trees, I wanted to skip the stems and leave the brownies as brownie-like as possible.

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

Cut the brownies into three sections. Cut triangles from each strip (I fit five triangles in one strip in an 8×8 pan).

Scoop a heaping teaspoon of frosting into a bowl. Add one drop of green food coloring. Stir.

Put the frosting in a plastic sandwich bag. Cut the corner (the smaller the cut, the better). Push the frosting towards the hole in the corner.

Pipe the frosting on the brownie triangle.

Decorate a few.

Place them in a decorative box or container to share with friends.

These were so easy to make, especially because I used a boxed brownie mix. It saved a lot of time, leaving time for decorating. These are perfect for any Christmas parties you’ll be heading to this season.
