Betty's Easy Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C /350°F(160°C for fan-forced oven). Line bottom and sides of 20cm square cake pan with foil and well-grease. Remove enclosed frosting sachet if using Frosted Chocolate brownie mix and reserve for another use. Make and bake brownie mix as directed on box using water, oil and eggs. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely; about 1 hour. Freeze in pan for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove brownies from tin using foil to lift and peel away. Use sharp knife to cut brownies into 4 rows by 4 rows, making 16 brownie squares (about 5cm x 5cm each).
  3. Spoon frosting into medium bowl. Stir food colour into bowl to desired shade of red.
  4. Frost top of brownie square with red frosting. Sprinkle top edges of brownie with 100's and 1000's. Place 6 green chocolate buttons in a triangle on top of frosted brownie for tree. Place 1 yellow mini chocolate button on top of triangle for star. Place one piece of licorice at bottom of triangle for tree trunk. Repeat for all brownie squares.
  5. Store covered at room temperature.

Betty's Tips

  • To easily line the bottom of the tin, tip upside down and form foil around bottom and sides. Flip tin over, and place foil insert inside tin for a perfect fit!
  • To cut brownies easily, use a plastic knife.
