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 http://www.bettycrocker.com
– 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**
