Christmas Tree Brownies

Christmas tree brownies.  What a great idea.  You’ll need one box of brownie mix, candy cane sticks, green gel icing, and peppermint M & M’s.
1. Bake the brownies according to the box.
2. After brownies have cooled, cut into triangle, tree shape with a steak knife.
3. Break off the curve of the candy cane, and stick the candy cane stick at bottom of brownies for the tree stem.
4. Apply icing and place M & M’s on brownie.
Here are the Christmas tree brownies made by my 5 year old grandson and his 4 year old cousin.  Sorry about the glare, the picture was taken with my cell phone.  They had a great time spreading the icing and trimming the trees.  I used the colorful  milk chocolate M & Ms instead of the peppermint.  Making these treats is a great way to occupy children who are anxiously waiting for Santa.  My grandson was leary of leaving brownies for Santa, but I can assure you Santa will enjoy them.
What treats did you make for Santa?  Please leave us a comment, we may want to adopt your idea for Santa next year.
