  • 1 brownie mix family size (plus ingredients listed on box)
  • 1 container Green frosting for piping
  • 16 oz M&M's candies


  • Prepare brownies according to package directions in a 9×13 pan (use parchment paper). Let cool. Lift brownies out of plan (holding onto parchment) and place on a flat surface.
  • Using Christmas tree cookie cutters, cut shapes out of the brownies. Pipe frosting in a zig-zag pattern over tops and decorate with M&M’s. Freeze excess brownie chunks and add to ice cream!


  • Don't waste the excess brownie chunks! Add them to a bowl of ice cream or turn them into brownie pops.
  • Turn the "leftover" brownie bits into Cake Truffles.
  • Decor options: different colored frostings, mini or regular M&M's, sprinkles or colored sugar.
  • Use different shapes of cookie cutters to create gingerman brownies or santa brownies.
