How fun will it be to make Christmas Tree Brownie with your children! It’s an easy way to dress up brownies for a kids party.
1 box of Brownie mix
1 tub of white vanilla icing
Green food coloring
Small round sprinkles
Small star sprinkles
Get an 8″x 8″ Follow the instructions on the brownie mix package and bake. Make sure brownies cool for about 1.5 hours until they are completely set.
Remove the brownies from the pan and cut them into triangle shapes. (Cut in 3 rows, and then cut in alternating diagonals). Unwrap the candy canes and cut or break them into 1.5″ long pieces, using a knife. Stick one candy cane into the bottom side of each brownie triangle
Spoon out about 1/2 of the tub of icing into a bowl. Add green food coloring. Spoon the green icing into a bag, seal it, and cut a small corner of the bag with scissors.
Starting at the top of the brownie triangle, squeeze out icing in a zigzag as you move down the tree. Add as many sprinkles as you like to the brownie trees. Place a star at the top to complete the tree.
Tip if you put a sheet of foil on the bottom and cover the sides of your pan, when you flip it over to remove the brownies they should side out perfectly.
Enjoy delicious treats and have a fun time creating them.
As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do.
Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be!
An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
A great way to build a community of parents. Our blog offers tips on parenting, kids in the kitchen recipes,art & crafts, and traveling with children advice, which makes life a little easier and a whole lot more fun.
