These brownies are just the treat you can add to all your holiday desserts! This brownie perfectly mimics a ‘snowy wonderland’ and gives you a bunch of holiday cheer. These brownies have a good amount of sugar, and since there’s frosting as well, we don’t recommend adding too much sugar. These brownies have chocolate chips incorporated into them, but they are completely optional. If you are not a huge fan of chocolate and want to decrease the amount of cocoa powder, try adding a little more flour because you don’t want the batter to end up being too thin. If you don’t want to incorporate that much butter into your brownie, a good substitute is vegetable or coconut oil. A healthy substitute for butter is applesauce, but be aware that it is possible for it to have an effect on the taste. For the pan, I do recommend having a brownie pan that is at least close to 8 by 8 inches because if the pan is too big, it’ll take longer to bake. It is very possible for the frosting to be too thin, so if that’s the case, a good tip is to add flour; it doesn’t affect the taste.
These brownies were a great treat! They smelled so good and it was so fun making all of it! My family and I loved these brownies and we enjoyed them while watching a holiday movie! We definitely recommend making these brownies for you and your family; they are a GREAT treat to have. If you do make these, make sure to send us a picture at email@example.com
- ¾ cup of butter (melted)
- ½ to ¾ cup of sugar
- ½ tsp of salt
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp of vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup of flour
- ⅔ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ cup of chocolate chips (optional)
- ¼ to ½ cup of powdered sugar for the snow
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp of butter (not melted)
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp of milk
- A drop of green food coloring (optional)
If the frosting gets too thin, start adding flour, but no more than ¼ cup. If the frosting is too thin, you won’t be able to make the trees stand up. It won’t affect the taste.
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and spray your 8 by 8 inch brownie pan with a non-stick spray
- In a large bowl combine the butter, sugar and salt, eggs, and vanilla and mix until combined.
- Next, add in the flour, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips into your butter mixture.
- Once that is combined, put the mixture into an 8 inch by 8 inch pan and once your oven is preheated, bake for 40-55 minutes until cooked.
- When the brownies are done, let them cool and you can start to make the frosting.
- In a bowl combine your powdered sugar, butter, vanilla extract, milk, and your green food coloring. Once that is all done, sprinkle your powdered sugar onto your brownies.
- Then put your frosting into a piping bag and you can make little trees on top of your brownies!
- Enjoy, and happy holidays!
