Tired of decorating Christmas cookies every year? Here’s a great alternative.
This Christmas I wanted to do something different. Instead of decorating cookies, we’re decorating brownies!
These Rudolph Brownies are scrumptious and so easy to make! I love that they’re basically mess-free too.
I used a box of Pillsbury Milk Chocolate brownie mix and baked it in a 9×9 pan.
They turned out thick and moist which was perfect for decorating! It just goes to show you that not all holiday baking has to be homemade.
Here’s everything you’ll need:
- 1 box of your favorite brownie mix
- Holiday peanut M&Ms
- Mini twists pretzels
- Candy eyeballs
- 1 cup chocolate chips
How to Make Rudolph Brownies
Make your brownies according to the directions on the box. Allow it to cool completely before handling.
Once the brownies have cooled, cut it into small squares and place them on a cooling to begin decorating!
In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. This will be the glue to make each reindeer’s face!
Using a toothpick, apply two small amounts of melted chocolate onto your brownie for the candy eyeballs. Gently stick eyeballs.
In the center of the brownie below the eyeballs, add a small amount of melted chocolate. Gently stick a red M&M for the nose.
Above each candy eyeball, apply more melted chocolate for the antlers. Gently stick pretzels.
It was so much fun watching these brownies come to life! You can enjoy them right away, but if you want to make sure Rudolph’s face doesn’t fall off, allow one hour for your “glue” to fully dry.
Also, you can store these brownies for up to 4 days in an airtight container or plastic wrap. Now you can make decorating brownies a part of your Christmas family tradition!
It’s such a great alternative to painting cookies or building gingerbread houses all the time. Although, I have to admit … these Rudolph Brownies are almost too adorable to eat!
