Ingredients

For these Christmas tree brownies, you only need a handful of ingredients. It’s up to you if you’d like to use homemade brownies, a pre-packaged mix, or storebought brownies that are ready to go on the spot!

  • Pre-package brownie mix (homemade recipes or store-bought brownies also work!)
  • Green icing (you can also use vanilla frosting and just add green food coloring with a piping bag)
  • Candy canes or pretzel sticks for tree trunk
  • Festive holiday sprinkles

Optional: You could also use green melting chocolate and dip the brownies into the melted chocolate instead of using icing or frosting!

Directions

  1. First, cook the brownies (if not using storebought) and let cool.
  2. Cut the brownies horizontally into thirds or fourths. (This depends on the size or number of brownies you’d like to make.)
  3. Then, cut triangle shapes from each section. You can use the extra scraps as mini trees or a tasty treat!
  4. Using the frosting, pip a zigzag shape back and forth on the brownie triangle or dip into green melting chocolate.
  5. Add sprinkles.
  6. Break off small pieces of the candy cane for the trunk and insert into the bottom of the tree.
  7. Enjoy your Christmas tree brownies!

Perfect Presentation Platters

Walmart has some fabulous options, such as these lovely white serving platters (they come in a set of two) or this cute Merry and Bright platter.  

You could also go with this wooden wreath board, this Christmas tree platter, or this Happy Holidays option (all from Target at a great price!)

I also love this marble slab, or you can never go wrong with a classic wooden serving board like this!

Can I Make These In Advance?

Yes! You can prepare the brownies and store them in Tupperware for about 3 days in advance. Then just add the frosting and sprinkles when you’re ready to serve! (I’d recommend not frosting or adding sprinkles too far ahead of time, so the sprinkles don’t dissolve. The frosting is also better when it is fresher and hasn’t hardened.)

If you use melting chocolate instead of frosting, you can make them 1-2 days before!

How Can I Store These?

You can cover these with Saran Wrap or store in Tupperware for 3-5 days. Room temperature is just fine since the brownies are already cooked!
