Christmas Tree Brownies

Turn a simple traybake into beautiful Christmas tree - definitely one to enjoy making with children!

I saw the Christmas tree brownie idea on Pinterest and knew I had to make a vegan version of my own, plus it looked so much fun and so simple! And when I say how simple this is, I really mean it. I've used a brownie packet mix here to show you how easy it is with very few ingredients. Then once I made these, I left the brownies to cool completely. Do not skip this step as you need the brownies to be firm for cutting them into triangles. I did also see someone cut the brownies into tree shapes with a cutter which I also thought looked so cute and effective. I just cut them with a knife as it was sharper. I then made some green buttercream, piped some swirls onto the brownies and sprinkled them to finish! You don't need to be a pro baker to make these. And I can imagine if you have children, nieces/nephews, friends or work in a school etc, this would be so much fun to do with them, children will love it. They are the perfect traybake for a Christmas Day dessert!

If you love brownies....

Check out these recipes for more inspiration!


Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes for brownies
Serves: 8-10 Christmas trees


  • Any brown mix will work with this recipe as long as the batch makes at least 8 brownies or the size of an 8x8 inch baking tray. Betty Crocker does a good one. 
  • I find the best sprinkles to be from the Baking Time Club - they have a lot of choice especially for Christmas sprinkles.
  • For the buttercream, you can make it yourself using this recipe although you'll need green food colouring. Or you can use a ready-made one. 


  • x1 batch from a brownie mix
  • 400g Vanilla buttercream 
  • Green food colouring
  • Sprinkles
  • Peppermint candy canes


  1. Follow the instructions for the brownie recipe then leave to cool in the tin. 
  2. Once cool, place in the fridge for about 1-2 hours so they firm up, this makes it easier to cut neat shapes out of the brownies so they don't fall apart.
  3. When firm enough, slice the brownies in half. Then cut 4-5 triangles down one side then repeat on the other half of the brownies. If you're using a cookie cutter you may not get as many brownies as I did with the triangles.
  4. Prepare your buttercream and mix with the green food colouring. Spoon into a piping bag with a star piping tip and pipe a pattern on top however you like.
  5. Then add lots of sprinkles on top to decorate. Eat straight away or you can place in the fridge to keep the buttercream firm but they can also be stored at room temperature in an airtight container up t 3 days. Enjoy!
