Christmas tree brownies. What a great idea. You’ll need one box of brownie mix, candy cane sticks, green gel icing, and peppermint M & M’s.
1. Bake the brownies according to the box.
2. After brownies have cooled, cut into triangle, tree shape with a steak knife.
3. Break off the curve of the candy cane, and stick the candy cane stick at bottom of brownies for the tree stem.
4. Apply icing and place M & M’s on brownie.
Here are the Christmas tree brownies made by my 5 year old grandson and his 4 year old cousin. Sorry about the glare, the picture was taken with my cell phone. They had a great time spreading the icing and trimming the trees. I used the colorful milk chocolate M & Ms instead of the peppermint. Making these treats is a great way to occupy children who are anxiously waiting for Santa. My grandson was leary of leaving brownies for Santa, but I can assure you Santa will enjoy them.
What treats did you make for Santa? Please leave us a comment, we may want to adopt your idea for Santa next year.
