Christmas Tree Brownies

So I was assigned a Christmas treats mission from GastroPost Vancouver using products that Walmart Canada had sent me. I was ready for the challenge!

I received a box of brownie mix and wine gums.

Hmm what to make …. Thinking cap activated! That’s it Christmas tree brownies with icing and wine gums as “ornaments” 😃🎄

These are the items I used for the icing. Extra virgin coconut oil, organic icing sugar, organic pure vanilla extract and some Almond Breeze, the silver balls were for later 😊

Made my icing which I added to much almond milk so was not as thick as I wanted it but still taste OK. Chopped the wine gums into little bits, snapped the candy canes in half and removed the tops. Time to frost!

I wish my icing was thicker but I couldn’t correct it because I ran out of icing sugar. They taste amazing that’s all that really matters right!

Here is the recipe!

Christmas Tree Brownies 🎄

Brownies:

1 Box of Great Value brownie mix from WalMart Canada – follow box instructions (I used melted coconut oil in place of vegetable oil and used a 9×13” pan). Let cool completely before slicing. Slice into triangle shapes one cooled (you will have excess on the ends). I used a pizza cutter.

Icing:

•¼ Cup extra virgin coconut oil (or use butter if desired)
•2 Cups packed organic icing sugar
•1 tsp pure vanilla extract
•2-4 Tbsp almond milk

Method:

Cream coconut oil until smooth and no clumps this is very important you don’t want clumps. Add icing sugar slowly ¼ cup at a time, add vanilla and start with 2 Tbsp milk, add more until you get desired consistency. Place in fridge while you prepare your toppings.

Toppings:

•Wine gums, cut into little pieces
•Green sprinkles
•Gold and silver baking balls
•Candy canes for stems (tops removed, cut in half)

Frosting/Decorating:

Using a piping bag or cut corner of a Ziploc bag pipe icing onto triangle shaped brownies starting with the bottom and working towards the top. Arrange toppings as desired. Place candy canes in bottoms as stems. Serves 16.
