Make these quick and easy Santa hat brownies for Christmas, using simple ingredients! This is a fun dessert or snack to make with kids during the holidays.

Yesterday morning, I woke up with an idea in my head…Santa hat brownies!

However, I was out of flour and  didn’t feel like going out to the grocery store in the cold. 

So, I used box brownies.

I am NOT sure why people start bashing other people for using boxed mixes.

I mean I like baking and making recipes from scratch but I am NOT ashamed to use boxed mixes either.

Anyways, when these brownies cooled down, I cut out triangle shapes and decorated them with fondant and sprinkles.

If you enjoy piping, you can use royal icing or buttercream icing too.

I think you can also make grinch hat brownies, if you used green fondant.

Maybe that can be something I try next year.
