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.
To make these Santa hat brownies, you will need the following SUPPLIES:
Brownies (baked in a rectangular pan)
Red marshmallow fondant
White snowflake sprinkles
Sprinkle balls or Sixlets
If you don’t want to use fondant, you can just use red American buttercream frosting.
These are the INSTRUCTIONS:
Use a square cutter to cut out square pieces of brownies.
Use a knife to cut the sides and give your brownie a triangular shape.
Make sure one side is more slanted than the other.
Flip it over coz we will be working on the back side.
Brush some corn syrup on the back side.
You can use buttercream icing if you like.
Now, roll out some red fondant.
Place the brownie piece here until it sticks into place.
Use a sharp knife to cut the fondant around the brownie.
Flip it over again and you will end up with smooth fondant covering on your brownie.
Brush some corn syrup near the base of the triangle and sprinkle some sparkling sugar.
Brush some corn syrup on top of the sparkling sugar and stick some snowflake sprinkles here.
Brush some corn syrup on the very top and stick a big round sprinkle or sixlet here.
Well, that’s all for today.
Until next time, tata my lovelies!
