Use your favorite brownie recipe, or during this busy time – your favorite boxed brownie mix.  Duncan Hines is usually a good one.  I have never thought using a good boxed mix is wrong.

Prepare the brownie mix or your own recipe as directed.  A denser recipe works better than a softy, fudgy type.
Bake and cool completely.
A little tip here – if the brownies have a bit of a rise in the middle when you remove them from the oven, place a paper towel over them and press gently all over.  This will give them an even depth.
Remove the brownies from the pan and place on parchment paper.  
You can line your baking pan with aluminum foil so you can lift the brownies out after baking.
Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper to work on. 
Use a triangle or tree cookie cutter to carefully cut the brownies as close as possible and place on the parchment sheet.   No cookie cutter – just cut the brownies into triangles.
Gently insert a pretzel stick into the base of each Christmas tree. 
The Wilton frosting I used had a round and petal tip attached.  Remove the round tip.

Gently squeeze the icing from pouch in a back and forth motion going from the top of the brownie to the bottom. 
Add a star sprinkle on top and multi-colored sprinkles to the tree. 
Repeat with all Christmas Tree brownies. 
For a snowy effect, sprinkle powdered sugar using a small sieve.
Another wintry idea, cover the brownie in white buttercream and sprinkle on white sprinkles or sanding sugar for a truly winter look.

The decorator icing will crust over, but doesn’t become hard.
Store in single layer in air-tight container.
This decorating idea would also work on cookies.
