Christmas Tree Brownies
Designed to hold their shape while maintaining a gooey center, these brownies are extra tender on the inside with a chewy bottom. For a homemade brownie recipe, this batter is exceptionally easy because it requires no melted chocolate or the creaming of butter and sugar; instead, it’s a simple method of stirring together flour, sugar, and cocoa with melted butter, eggs, and vanilla. Once the brownies bake and cool, they’re perfect for cutting into adorable triangles that are easy to decorate with some cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. Feel free to either use store bought or homemade cream cheese frosting for decorating. Half of the frosting is colored with green food coloring while the other half is left white. Both are transferred to piping bags that make it a breeze to drape decorative strands across the Christmas trees. Lastly, red sprinkles and clear sanding sugar add the finishing touches to the holiday brownies, making them just as eye-catching as they are delicious. A treat loved by nearly everyone around the holidays, the decorating can be a fun family activity with little ones or an excuse for the adults to feel like kids again. Regardless of who puts them together, we can assure you that they will be eaten and assist everyone in feeling the holiday spirit.
