There’s nothing like a fresh baked, homemade brownie. Except a fudgy brownie topped with loads of creamy buttercream frosting, right? Making it completely from scratch can happen, but when you just want to grab a box and mix it up, these Christmas tree brownies are perfect.

The best part of these brownies is that you control the amount of frosting on there. If you want huge “trees”, simply add more. And more frosting on brownies is almost always a good thing, right?
