Measure out the ingredients

Bake the brownies
Spoon the mixture into your prepared baking tin and level it down with the back of a spoon or a spatula.
Bake the brownies in the oven for 40-45 minutes. They're ready when the top has a nice crust and a skewer put in the middle comes out clean(ish). Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Decorate the Christmas tree brownies
Mix the icing sugar together with a little water and a few dots of gree food colour until it is runny enough to spread on your brownies.
Use a small piping bag or a zip lock bag with a hole cut in the corner to pipe the icing in zig zags from the top of your tree to the bottom. Decorate with sprinkles and a star at the top.
