While you're rockin' around the Christmas tree this season, why not whip up our edible Christmas Tree Brownie? It's the perfect Christmas time activity to do with the kids and grandkids. Plus, since you can decorate them with your favorite edible holiday candies and ornaments, it will be just as unique and fun as your real Christmas tree! 

What You'll Need

  • 1 (21.5-ounce) package brownie mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (16-ounce) can vanilla frosting
  • 2 to 3 drops green food color
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • Assorted edible decorating candies and ornaments
  • 1 junior-sized candy bar, unwrapped

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray foil with cooking spray. Spread brownie batter evenly into baking dish and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool brownies completely then freeze 30 minutes.
  2. Using foil, lift brownies from baking dish and place on cutting board, removing the foil. To cut a tree shape from brownies, start at center of 1 short side, and make 2 diagonal cuts to corners of opposite short sides, forming a triangular piece in the center. Place the outer cuts from the brownie and place them on a large flat tray, placing the cut sides together. This will look like a Christmas tree. 
  3. In a medium bowl, combine frosting, food color, and mint extract; mix well. Spread 1/3 cup frosting over top of tree shape. Stack with the whole tree shaped brownie, trimming edges as needed.  
  4. Frost sides and top of brownie tree with remaining frosting. Decorate with candies as desired. Place candy bar at base of brownie tree to form a tree trunk.
