  • 1 box Blue Diamond Brownie Mix
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 mini candy canes
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Green food coloring
  • ¼ cup mini M&Ms


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

  2. In a bowl, mix Blue Diamond Brownie mix, water, eggs, and oil. Pour the brownie batter into a greased 11” x 7” pan lined with parchment paper slightly larger than the pan. Doing this will allow for easy removal once baked. Bake brownies for 28-33 minutes.

  3. Let the brownies cool completely. Then pull up the parchment paper on the sides to remove the brownie from the pan.

  4. Next, slice the brownies in cross sections to create 12 brownie triangles.

  5. Now create the trunk for each brownie tree! Take your candy canes and break the curved part off. Then insert the straight part of each candy cane into the bottom of the brownie triangles.

  6. Whip together unsalted butter, powdered sugar, milk, and green food coloring in a bowl. Add the green frosting into a piping bag fitted with a #17-star tip. Starting from the top of each brownie, pipe down in a zigzag motion to create the tree branches.

  7. Arrange mini M&Ms on each brownie tree and enjoy this tree-mendous dessert!
