Christmas Tree Brownies

19 Dec

Being prepared for the holidays is something that we all as mothers try to accomplish. We’ve decorated our home, cooked a fabulous meal but after all the christmas rush we forgot the most important part – the desert! What to do…check online, after all the Internet is a great library for recipes both easy and inexpensive.

Here is a quick, simple and fun little recipe I found on

– I’m going to try it out this week with my kids as an activity during the Christmas holidays-

Christmas Tree Brownies

You will need:
• 1 box of brownie mix
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup veg. Oil
• candy coated chocolates (m&ms or smarties, coated mini hershey kisses)
• 1 cup of betty crocker white whipped icing** 2-3 drops of green food coloring

1- Preheat oven to 375*F
Grease only bottom of 9″ round baking pan.
Prepare brownie mix as directed on package (using eggs, oil and water).
Pour into pan.

2- BAKE 50-55 minutes or until the old toothpick method comes out clean. Cool for 1 hour.

3- Add food color to icing (optional unless making traditional green trees :-))

4- Serve: Cut into 12 wedges and decorate!

**have fun with this recipe by substituting the icing by drizzling plain white icing sugar over chocolate icing gives a “snowy” look and decorating let’s the kids be creative by using different candies and colors on their tree**

— Until next time…Keep Dreaming Always, @iDream1

Note: the food pictured is not my creation it’s from, I will post my own when we bake these…Now those look good!
