Christmas tree brownies
These Christmas brownies are proof that you don’t always have to pull out fancy recipes out of a hat. A good brownie recipe and a few decoration ideas are enough.
By the way, I stole the brownie recipe from Jutta because it is simply the best. The brownies are super moist and not too dry even after a few days. By the way, it’s the same as Spiderman’s birthday cake. However, I replaced the brown sugar with dark baster sugar. You can buy it mainly in the Netherlands and it is a bit crumbly, moist and caramelly. This sugar makes baked goods extra juicy.

This is how you bake the Christmas tree brownies
Preheat the oven to 175°C.
First you have to break the chocolate into small pieces and melt them together with the butter over a water bath. If there is too much chocolate and butter for the water bath, do this in two rounds and pour the first, liquid half into the large bowl while the second half melts. Then pour all the liquid chocolate together and stir in the sugar well so that it melts.
When the mixture is no longer hot, you can add the eggs.
Stir in the eggs well and then add the vanilla flavor. And then come the dry ingredients. Stir in the flour, salt and baking soda until the dough is nice and even.
Now the first half of the dough can be filled into the brownie tray lined with baking paper. Spread the mixture straight and put the tray in the oven. Let the brownies bake for about 20 minutes. They should still be a little juicy and runny in the middle. This makes them nice and juicy and chewy after they have cooled. Then put the second tray in the oven.
When the brownies have cooled, you can cut them out with the cookie cutter. The leftovers are delicious for in between meals or to take with you on the go.
Then mix some icing from powdered sugar and a few tablespoons of water in a small bowl.
Cover the trees with icing and sprinkle the sugar confetti over them.
