Cute Christmas Tree Brownies! // Recipe


Hello lovelies! Since I just broke up from school this Friday, I am feeling as chilled and Christmassy as ever right now, and it means I now have a whole lot more time for some Festive Baking Posts on my blog now. I spotted pictures of this Christmas-Tree-Brownie idea on my Pinterest 
as something new compared to mince pies  (which I remember making a post for this time two years ago.) This is such a cute idea if you're looking to make some cute treats for friends or family coming round during December, and while I stuck to your typical brownie recipe you could also add all sorts of festive flavours like cinnamon, peppermint or mincemeat to them... it's entirely up to you! So just grab your baking essentials, some chocolate and a whole lot of sprinkles and enjoy this recipe. Also, let me know what other Recipes you'd like me to try out on my blog this Blogmas season? Feel free to drop me a message on my twitter and I will try my best for you guys because Christmas food is my absolute favourite.



-For The Brownies-

You will need:

  • 300g Caster Sugar
  • 275g Butter
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 60g Cocoa Powder
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 Tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract

-For The Icing and Decor-

You will need:

  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of Water
  • Green Food Colouring (optional)
  • Festive Sprinkles and Stars to Decorate



-Let’s Bake-

Step One: Preheat the oven to 180c.

Step Two: In a bowl mix together all your brownie ingredients in the order they're listed until in a chocolatey batter, and spoon into a greased baking tin.

Step Three: Bake for 20-25 Minutes and take out to cool. Once cool, use a knife to cut triangles from the brownie in a similar way to the pictures above and set aside. 

Step Four: Make your icing in two seperate bowls, one for white and one for green, by slowly adding a teaspoon on water to the icing sugar until is forms a smooth paste (but not too runny!) Now pop this into a piping bag and drizzle over your brownie triangles, half white and half green. 

Step Five: Sprinkle with 100's and 1000's or any Festive sprinkles, and finish with a little white chocolate star at the top of each Christmas Tree. Cute or what?

  14. These brownies are adorable - this sounds really stupid but I've never thought to cut brownies in any shape other than square. May have to give these a go though as I'm now hungry!
