  • Christmas tree brownies are easy to make and look great. Cook up a big pan of brownies, you can use your own recipe or a box mix. Cut the brownies into triangles. Place the triangle upside down on top of a thick pretzel stick then use frosting and small candy to decorate your tree.
  • Simple to make, delicious and oh so cute, reindeer cupcakes are sure to be a hit. Bake a batch of chocolate cupcakes, add chocolate frosting then use nilla wafers with a brown m&m in the middle for the nose. The antlers are made from small pretzels and then white dots of frosting are added for the eyes.
  • If you are a lover of all things peanut butter, a peanut butter cup Christmas tree may be the perfect treat. You will need two different sizes of peanut butter cups and a pack of chocolate kisses. Use a smaller cup on the bottom then stack a large cup and small cup on top, secure them with frosting. Place the chocolate kiss on top of the tree then use frosting to decorate.
