When your slap in the middle of the Christmas Season and you need a treat to serve for National Brownie Day too, what do you pick for your family? Why you serve brownie Christmas trees of course!

This simple recipe is made festive by cutting the brownies in triangles and decorating to look like a Christmas tree. Candy canes are just perfect for the tree trunks and colorful candy sprinkles add just the right touch too.

Ingredients:


  • 1 box Betty Crocker® Orginal Supreme brownie mix (with chocolate syrup pouch)
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
  • 2 or 3 drops green food color
  • 1 cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting (from 1-lb container)
  • Betty Crocker® Decorating Decors red and green candy sprinkles or miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
  • Miniature candy canes (2 inch), unwrapped

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil so foil extends about 2 inches over short sides of pan. Grease bottom only of foil with cooking spray or shortening.

2. Make and bake brownie mix as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan, using water, oil and eggs. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Remove brownie from pan by lifting foil; peel foil away. To cut brownie into triangles, cut lengthwise into 3 rows. Cut each row into 7 triangles, see diagram. Save smaller pieces for snacking.

3. 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.

4. Break off curved end of candy cane; insert straight piece into bottoms of triangles to make tree trunks.
