Brownie Christmas Tree Recipe

One of my fondest Christmas memories as a child was baking.  My mom always made the same cookies and candies every year and we loved it!  Now I have said on here many times that I am not a baker, but that doesn't mean I don't want to share those same experiences with my grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.  Not to mention baking can get a little crazy with kids. That's why I love recipes like these Brownie Christmas Trees.  




They are super simple, require little to no skill, and the entire family can join in, because this time of year is all about the memories, right?  I know you're gonna love this one so...

Let's get started!
For this Brownie Christmas Tree Recipe you will need a few simple ingredients:


  • 1 box of Brownie Mix (And whatever they say you need to make them)
  • Prepared Green Icing
  • Sprinkles
  • Small Candy Canes
  • 9x9 Baking dish
  • Parchment Paper
First thing you will need to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  



Next, prepare your brownie mix according to the directions on the package.


After that line the 9x9 baking dish with the parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

I cut my paper into 2 long rectangles and placed them in a cross-shape in the pan.


Pour the brownie mix into the pan.


Bake for 36-39 minutes in the 350 degree oven.


Once the brownie has finished cooking let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes.


then place on the counter to finish cooling the rest of the way.


Now it's time to cut into trees.

Start by cutting the brownie in half, horizontally through the middle.


Next cut each half into triangle shapes.


Now, using your premade icing, frost the cupcakes.


Add the sprinkles of your choice.


Place the stem of the small candy cane in the bottom of the brownie.


And just like that you have the most ADORABLE Brownie Christmas Trees ever!  The best part is everyone in the family can join in and make memories!  If you make these with your family I would love for you to tag me in pictures on social media and I would also like to hear what easy Christmas treats you make with your family.

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Christmas!
