Christmas Tree Brownies

Christmas Tree Brownies…..on a video post. In fact the first video post I’ve ever done!!


I have decided that I must move with the times. and although my face, and its wrinkles, is sadly, most definitely moving with some kind of aging time, I need to make my recipes and pictures move to make them more accessible.

Now, my kitchen isn’t big, or well lit, so it’s been a bit of a struggle. There have been piles of boxes propping up phones, tea-towels hung over light bulbs and double chins – yes! Because I couldn’t get enough boxes for the straight on camera I ended with a rather unsightly double chin. But lessons have been learnt, another tripod has been ordered, lighting is being researched and next time will be better!

Please subscribe to our YouTube Channel, because there will be more video recipes and cake decorating hints and tips in the future – hopefully with fewer chins.

So onto the actual recipe – Christmas Tree Brownies. At this time of year there is so much going on, it’s best to have a quick and easy recipe up your sleeve. And this one is it!

This Brownie recipe is an all time favourite. It was a best seller when we had the Tea-Room. I’ve probably made more of these Brownies than I’ve had hot dinners. And with this quick decorating idea, its easy to give them a festive Christmas Tree twist.
