My dad’s girlfriend, Diana, made brownie trees with her grandchildren and she has shared her pictures and recipe with us for the Holiday Cookie Swap. The pictures tell the whole story of how much fun they had!
Holiday Tree Brownies

1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix (Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box)
Betty Crocker® Decorating Decors red and green candy sprinkles or miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
Betty Crocker Green Cookie Icing
Miniature candy canes (2 inch), unwrapped
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan).
Make and bake brownie mix as directed on box.
Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove brownie from pan by lifting foil; peel foil away. To cut brownie
into triangles, cut into 3 rows. Cut each row into 5 triangle. Save smaller pieces for snacking.
Break off curved end of candy cane; insert straight piece into bottoms of triangles to make tree trunks.
Hannah got really into the decorating.
Emma, on the other hand, was more interested in eating the frosting.
Grandma, daughters, granddaughters, and grandson all got to make their own holiday brownie tree.
Can I eat it now?
Thanks Diana! And thank all your holiday helpers too!
