Baking Time!!

Oh boy, it’s almost holiday time – let the baking begin! Put on your apron, turn on some tunes, sing if you want (I try) and let the fun start. I so enjoy being in the kitchen and making some delightful treats for my family and friends.

We love making festive treats this time of year, so that’s exactly what we did. We made some brownies and turned them in to the cutest Christmas Tree Brownies you ever did see.

How to Make Christmas Tree Brownies

BROWNIES. Bake brownies according to directions on the box.

SHAPE. After the brownies are baked and cooled, cut into three equal strips. Next cut into triangles (I cut off the edges of the outer edges).

FROST + DECORTATE! Mix the frosting with the food coloring and place in a small baggie and snip the edge. Now it’s time to decorate – Let the kids help too and make their own creations.

Recipe Tips

For homemade brownies, use our favorite Fudgy Brownie or Homemade brownie recipe.

Make homemade Vanilla Buttercream Frosting mixed with food coloring.

Piping: you can pipe the frosting on as thick or thin as you want. You can also use different tips to add texture. If you don’t have a piping set you can use a Ziploc bag. Simply add the frosting to the bag and twist the top. Snip one corner according to the size you want the frosting to be and decorate away.

Storing Info

Make these Christmas tree brownies a day ahead of time, but keep them covered until you are ready to cut and decorate them.

STORE decorated brownies in an airtight container after allowing the frosting to set. They’ll last for 2-3 days at room temperature.

FREEZE brownies by placing each tree in a fold top sandwich bag and then put them all in a freezer Ziploc. They’ll last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
