Chocolate Christmas Tree Brownies

These Christmas tree brownies are so much fun!

When it comes to favorite desserts in our home, brownies top the list. From family gatherings, to potlucks, to simple game nights at home, our homemade brownies are by far the most requested dessert. With holiday baking in full swing around here I wanted to try a new fun twist on these brownies. My kids came up with these Chocolate Christmas Tree Cookie Brownies, half cookie, half brownie, and totally delicious. These are so ridiculously easy to make (and look fantastic) that I just know your family will have an absolute blast making these!
