Total Time



1 (19.8- to 21.5-ounce) package plain brownie mix

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted


3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 to 4 tablespoons milk

3 to 4 drops green food color


Edible glitter and/or dragees, if desired

28 (1- to 1/2-inch) plain pretzel nuggets

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.   Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil 2 inches over short ends. Grease foil.

  2. STEP 2

    Prepare brownie mix as directed on package except substitute 1/2 cup melted butter for oil.  Spread batter over prepared pan. Bake 30-33 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine powdered sugar, 1/2 cup softened butter, vanilla and enough milk for desired spreading consistency in bowl. Stir in enough food color for desired color.

  4. STEP 4

    Invert pan onto cutting surface to remove brownies; carefully remove foil. Frost cooled brownie. Cut long side into four (3-inch) rows. Cut each row into seven triangles. (The base of each brownie tree should be about 1 3/4 inches.) Decorate with glitter and dragees as desired. For each tree attach pretzel, using small amount of frosting, into 1 3/4-inch side to resemble tree trunk.
