Ingredients: 

  

1 box Betty Crocker® Original Supreme brownie mix (with chocolate syrup pouch) 

Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box 

2 or 3 drops green food color 

1 cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting (from 1-lb container) 

Betty Crocker® Decorating Decors red and green candy sprinkles or miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits 

Miniature candy canes (2 inch), unwrapped 

  

Directions: 

  

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13×9-inch pan with foil so foil extends about 2 inches over short sides of pan. Grease bottom only of foil with cooking spray or shortening.

  

  1. Make and bake brownie mix as directed on box for 13×9-inch pan, using water, oil and eggs. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Remove brownie from pan by lifting foil; peel foil away. To cut brownie into triangles, cut lengthwise into 3 rows. Cut each row into 7 triangles, see diagram. Save smaller pieces for snacking.

  

  1. Stir food color into frosting. Spoon frosting into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut off tiny bottom corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe frosting over brownies. Sprinkle with decors.

  

  1. Break off curved end of candy cane; insert straight piece into bottoms of triangles to make tree trunks.

 

This was a very easy recipe. Just follow the directions on the box, cut out the brownies and then decorate them like Christmas trees. 

I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone. It is super easy while still very festive. Also, it’s a lot of fun to decorate your own little Christmas tree. 

The ones I made turned out pretty good. The brownies were perfect, and the icing was very good on top.
