Servings 20 brownies


  • 2 boxes Ghirardelli Brownie Mix + ingredients for each
  • 1 tub green frosting
  • candy canes
  • sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, prep both boxed mixes with the ingredients required. Pour into baking pan.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, keeping an eye on it to ensure it doesn't get too toasty. Check with a toothpick. If still wet inside, continue to bake, checking every 5 minutes until the center holds together and is clean when a toothpick is inserted.
  • Allow to cool in pan. Once it is cool, flip onto a clean counter top or tray. Cut off the edges (enjoy those on your own!) and cut into triangles. The easiest way: cut into rows, then cut into triangles by making diagonal cuts. Super easy and mess free!
  • Place a mini candy cane as a tree bark at the bottom of each tree (you might want to cut off the curved part). Pour your green frosting in a ziploc, cut the tip and make lines back and forth starting from the bottom all the way to the top to cover the brownie. Immediately top with sprinkles.
  • If you can find star shaped sprinkles, add one to the top for an extra bit of fun!
  • Place on a tray, package in a box and take to your favorite party! Enjoy. :)
