Cute & Simple Christmas Tree Brownies

If you need to throw together a fast, festive dessert around Christmas time, these brownies are perfect! They come together super fast with a boxed brownie mix making them super fast yet cute!


  • 1 boxed brownie mix prepared as directed on the box
  • 1 bag chocolate candies (M&M's were used here)
  • frosting if desired


  1. Prepare and bake brownie mix as directed on the package.

  2. When the brownies are done, let them cool off so they can be handled and won't melt the chocolate candies.

  3. Once cooled, put the candies on the tree to look like ornaments.

  4. If desired, you could frost the brownies before putting the chocolate candy on, but that might get a little too sweet. You could also just pipe some frosting along the edges of the tree or pipe a frosting star at the top to dress them up a little more if you would like to.
