Use a ready made mix if you are busy. Usually if I am, I use Pillsbury Chocolate Brownie Mix . But if you’re in the mood to make it from scratch, then here’s a delicious recipe to follow.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 6 heaping tbsp of Cocoa Powder
  • candy cane for christmas tree footing
  • red m&ms and candy star for christmas decors
  • royal icing
Directions
  1. Using a mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. Beat with the mixer for about a minute, then add the cocoa powder and the flour gradually until everything is incorporated in the mixture.
  3. Grease your pan before putting brownie mixture.
  4. Bake at 180° C for 25-30 minutes.
  5. To make sure it’s done, take a toothpick and slowly insert it through the middle. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go. If not, pop it back in for another couple of minutes till it does.
  6. Let brownies cool into room temperature.
  7. Using a triangle or christmas tree cookie cutter, cut the brownies.
  8. Use the long end of the candy cane for the Christmas tree footing, just cut of the bent end and insert it on your brownie.
  9. Tint some royal icing a teal green color and place it in a piping bag.
  10. Pipe in a zigzag line and them put the red m&ms randomly to imitate a Christmas tree. Put the candy star on top.
  11. Serve and enjoy.
