  • Triangle cookie cutter
  • parchment paper
  • Medium Mixing Bowl
  • Ziploc Bag


  • 15 ounces brownie mix 1 box
  • Ingredients necessary to make brownies.
  • 8 ounces cream cheese 1 package
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter at room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 drops green food coloring
  • sprinkles


  • Mix and bake the brownies according to box instructions.
  • Once the brownies have completely cooled, cut them into triangles. I used a cookie cutter for this process.
  • Place the cut brownies on parchment paper, or cooling rack so they can be easily removed without sticking.
  • In a medium sized bowl, beat the butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and milk together until smooth.
  • Then add the powdered sugar and continue to beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Add 4 drops of green food coloring, and continue to mix until the color is fully mixed in.
  • Scoop the frosting into a plastic Ziploc bag, and cut a small hole in the corner.
  • Pipe the frosting over the triangle brownie in a zigzag pattern.
  • Pipe the frosting over the triangle brownie in a zigzag pattern.
  • Add sprinkles for ornaments.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.


  • On the box, it explains how long to cook the brownies, depending on the size of pan you use. I used the biggest pan, to get the most brownies. If you use a small 9 inch by 9 inch pan, you are only going to be able to get a few Christmas trees out of the batch.
