1 teaspoon vanilla
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

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