Ingredients

  • 275 g (1 1/4 cups) softened, butter
  • 375 g (1 2/3 cups) caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 75 g cocoa powder
  • 100 g (7/8 cups) self raising flour
  • 100g chocolate chips

For the decoration

  • 200 g (2 cups) icing sugar
  • green food colouring
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan / 325F and grease and line a 30x23 cm baking with baking paper

    Measure out the ingredients

    • Measure all the ingredients except the chocolate chips out into a large mixing bowl or freestanding mixer. Mix it all together until it is well combined.
    • Add the chocolate chips and give it one last mix with a wooden spoon.

    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.

    Make the Christmas trees

    • Once the brownies have cooled remove them from the tin and cut them into triangles.

    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.
