fun Christmas Brownies for kids

Christmas Ornament Brownies for a fun and yummy treat.


  • 1 box of fudge brownie mix
  • *eggs, milk and oil measured out as per box directions
  • 6 mini candy canes

Decorating suggestions:

  • Frosting
  • Icing in tubes
  • M&Ms
  • Sprinkles

Extra Equipment:

  • Round cookie cutters – I used a 3 inch. wide cutter and it made 6 brownies


  • Mix the brownie mix in a large bowl with oil and eggs mentioned on the back of the box
  • Placed non stick foil or heavy duty foil in a 9×13 pan so that it overhangs for lifting later
  • *using spray oil is a good idea over the foil
  • Pour brownie mix into the pan
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until brownies are cooked through
  • Cool completely (you can place pan in freezer for 30 minutes or let cool at room temperature for 1 hour)
  • Lift foil and brownies out of pan
  • Use cookie cutter to make circles
  • *If necessary, use kitchen shears to help cut the circles out after using cookie cutter to make shapes
  • Set scraps aside for snacking
  • Push candy canes into the center of each circle edge
  • Decorate with frosting, icing, candy and sprinkles


Storing – store covered at room temperature for 3 days or covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week

*if you place in the refrigerator – candy may take on condensation and become discolored

*To get more brownies from this recipe, use a smaller cookie cutter. I used a 3 inch wide circle and got 6 brownies
