There are plenty of chocolate Christmas trees and tree-shaped holiday cookies.

But these two treats from Orange Glad Box, which is a box delivery service for gourmet sweets.
 
 
1. CHRISTMAS TREE BROWNIES

Ingredients

  • Brownie recipe or mix
  • Christmas tree cookie cutter
  • Mini candy canes
  • Green icing (soft frosting or hard royal icing
  • Candy tree decorations (small round candies, sprinkles, edible glitter, crushed red and white peppermints)
  •  
    Preparation

    1. BAKE your favorite brownie recipe and cut out tree shapes with a cookie cutter.

    2. USE an ice pick to create an opening for thin candy canes. Break off the crook tops of the candy canes and insert the straight portion into the openings. You can crush the crooks and use them to decorate the “Christmas trees.”

    3. DECORATE the trees with a piped icing garland and “ornaments”: small round candies, confetti, round sprinkles or edible glitter.
