Christmas Tree Brownies

Sharing is caring!

Christmas Tree Brownies are a fudgy brownie topped with velvety sweet frosting and decorated like a Christmas tree! A fun kid-friendly Christmas treat. 

These Christmas Tree Brownies are so cute, it is hard not to smile just by looking at them.  They are so super easy to make. With all of the holiday cookies, I always like to make sure I make brownies.  A brownie with icing is a delicious treat that takes your already delicious brownie straight over the top.

Having a little holiday celebration?  Make these delicious Homemade Peppermint Patties as another extra special treat.

 

Homemade Brownie or Box

Either! Feel free to use your favorite homemade brownie recipe or reach for a boxed mix. This Christmas brownie will work either way and turn out great. 

 

I reached for box, because with brownies I find boxed is what my kids enjoy. 

 

Can I Make These Christmas Tree Brownies Gluten Free

You sure can! Reach for you favorite recipe or boxed brownie and make accordingly. Then top with the frosting you prefer and you have a tasty and easy gluten free brownie dessert to serve. 

 

Can I Make Christmas Tree Brownies Ahead Of Time

If you have a party or event you are wanting to make these for, go ahead and make a day early. Just store your decorated brownies in an airtight container so they don’t harden on top or dry out. 

 

These are great for bake sales, class parties, holiday gatherings and more. A super easy Christmas dessert recipe.

Can I Double The Recipe for Holiday Brownies

You sure can. Use a 9×13 pan or use two 8×8 pans. I find the 8×8 size gives the perfect shape for the tree but if you only have 9×13 you can make it work. 

 

What If I Can’t Find Christmas Light Sprinkles

If you can’t find Christmas light sprinkles use any other colorful sprinkles to mimic lights. I have even used candy coated sunflower seeds and they were so tasty. Just add on colorful sprinkles. 

 

Do Christmas Tree Brownies Freeze Well

Yes, you can freeze these tree brownies. Simply place in an airtight container and make sure not to stack them. Then freeze up to three months. Thaw on the counter and enjoy. 

 

The only thing with freezing and thawing is sometimes the sprinkles can leak color, so you can always wait to top with sprinkles once it is thawed.
