12 Days Of Slackmas | Chocolatey Christmas Tree Brownies

Friday, 15 December 2017


I hope people are actually enjoying my version of blogmas and that they're not just irritated to see me popping up on their timeline 24/7. I'm loving doing it though. Today I'm sharing another christmas baking recipe that I think is the cutest idea ever. These christmas tree brownies couldn't be any easier and look really good at christmas parties or could even be given as a gift to someone you know. Although these didn't exactly go to plan or turn out how I imagined (improvisation and recipe tweaking was needed) I think they look quite cute. It's the taste that matters not the presentation lol.


Ingredients For The Brownies
200g Dark Chocolate
100g Unsalted Butter
250g Caster Sugar
4 Eggs
1tsp Vanilla Extract
60g Plain Flour
60g Cocoa Powder
Milk and White Chocolate Chips

For Decoration
75g Icing Sugar
Sprinkles/Stars
Chocolate Fingers


Method
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

2. Break up the dark chocolate and put into a heatproof bowl and melt gently over a pan of simmering water. Remove and cool once completely melted. 

3. Beat the butter for a few minutes and add the sugar until pale and fluffy.

4. Beat in the eggs and add the vanilla extract. Then stir in the white and milk chocolate chips.

5. Spoon the melted chocolate into the mixture and stir in thoroughly. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and stir again.

6. Spread into a square making tin and bake for 20 minutes until firm to touch but still a bit fudgy. I sprinkled chocolate sprinkles on top before baking for extra crunch (and more chocolate)

7. Leave to cool on a wire cooling rack and wait for them to cool completely before cutting.

8. Add 2tbsp to the icing sugar until its the desired thickness. Remember that you'll be piping it so try to make it thicker than typical icing sugar icing. You could also add green food colouring if you want.

9. Cut the brownies into triangles once cooled.

10. Pipe the icing sugar in a zig-zag motion. Add decorations of your choosing and use a chocolate finger as the tree trunk.
