Brownie Christmas Trees

You can use the recipe here or buy a box of gluten free brownie mix.


2 cups sugar
1 ½ cups gluten free flour blend (xanthan gum added)
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
¾ cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 tsp. gluten free vanilla extract

Ready made canned Vanilla Frosting
Green food coloring
Blue gluten free Pearls


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13×9 pan with aluminum foil and make sure the edges hang off the ends so you can lift the brownies out after they are done.

In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, gluten free flour, cocoa powder and salt. Beat in the oil. Then beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the vanilla.

Pour into the baking pan.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out with just a few crumbs on it.

Let the brownies cool completely.

Now for the fun part!

Lift out of the pan using the foil edges. Set on a cutting board and cut into tree triangle shapes.
Tint the vanilla frosting with green food coloring to the shade you want. Place in a pastry bag with a small round hole tip on the end.

Make green “garlands” on the tree brownies. At each garland tip, place a blue sugar pearl.

Makes 12 trees
