Holiday Brownies in All Shapes

holiday brownies

Holiday brownies combine the best of both worlds: sweets + holiday celebration. (Oh, and at the holidays, calories don’t really count.)

Whether you are making brownies, blondies, fudge, or even homemade marshmallows, make them in the shapes of Christmas trees, stars and holly with this very simple trick: use metal cookie cutters. Line a cookie sheet or tray with wax paper, then set out the cookie cutters. If things get sticky, put a little bit of flour or cornstarch on the cookie cutters for easy slicing and shaping.

To keep your delectable treat chilled, why not surround them with a bit of cranberry ice?
