Tips for Holiday brownies

  • Use store- bought fondant, if you are short on time.
  • Instead of corn syrup, American Buttercream Frosting can be used to stick everything into place too.
  •  Any type of sprinkles can be used.
  • Instead of fondant, you can just decorate with colorful icing.
  • Don’t use regular sized candy canes because they are too big to push into the bottom of the brownie and mini ones work best.
  • Instead of mini brownies, you can make a big giant brownie in the shape of a tree and decorate with fondant, icing and sprinkles.
  • I used Nutella brownies but you can use can also use my Fudgy Brownies with Crackly Tops Recipe. If you are short on time, you can even store-bought brownies or box brownies.

Storage of decorated brownies

Room temperature– Leftovers can be stored in a covered box at room temperature for 1-2 days away from moisture.

Refrigerate– In a covered box for up to 3 days. Please note that moisture in the refrigerator can make fondant decorations sticky. 

Freeze– This is not recommended since the fondant decorations become very sticky upon thawing.
