Christmas Tree Brownies!

Most of us have heard that 'stressed' spelled backwards is 'desserts'...

I've also heard people say that desserts has two 's's simply because
you should never only enjoy one but you should have 2 cookies or 2 scoops of ice cream
or 2 small slices of cake etc...

When it comes to brownies- I don't even cut them into squares anymore  
to count if it's 1, 2 or more little squares of brownies that I'm eating. 
It's just a matter of cutting and braking off pieces!

With these cute Christmas tree brownies... make sure you don't eat them all
but share them with your co-workers, your children's classmates, your nail salon,
your neighbors, etc.

Christmas tree brownies are super easy to make and decorate yourself or with the kids! 
It's not too messy for kids to decorate either!  
Simply bake your brownies and rather than cutting them  into small rectangles 
or squares -  cut them into larger rectangles and then cut them in half 
diagonally to make a longer triangles (pine tree shape)  

The stump of the tree can be a pretzel or a candy cane to make it really festive!
You can use icing, M&M's, skittles, Reese's any kind of candy you favor to decorate.

It's always fun to take common food items and fancy them up. 
I always find that when you see food in a different way-- it tastes better.
