Well it’s that time of the year again! It’s December and with it comes the joys of Christmas.The gifts
under the Christmas tree, the Turkey dinners with family and friends, the aroma of Gingerbread baking, carols chiming, the twinkling fairy lights, snow in the yard, the Santa hats and stockings, the shouts of Merry Christmas and last but not the least the excitement and the contagious festive spirit it brings with it.

Brownies being a universal favourite, I have baked these chewy, chocolaty, fudgy, spicy brownies and jazzed them up with a white chocolate ganache and sprinkles to give a festive Christmas tree look. This Christmassy dessert is not only delicious but easy to whip up and perfect to decorate together with your little ones ! Insert pop sticks into the brownie triangles to make handling easier for kids. You can use edible stripy candy cane sticks too which will give a more festive look .

Recipe Notes

Do not over bake the brownies. A Minute or two extra will turn the moist brownie into dry and tasteless one. So use the stated baking time as a guide only and test the brownies a few minutes before baking time. Insert a toothpick in the centre, these brownies are done when the toothpick comes out with a little batter or moist crumbs clinging to it.
