Divide the white chocolate into two bowls with 6 ounces in each (one bowl you will want to keep white and the other you will dye green).

One bowl at a time, heat the chocolate in 30 second increments until melted and then transfer to a zippered bag and cut the tip off (start with the white so it can dry).

Drizzle white chocolate on the lower 1/2 of the brownie to create snow.

Melt the other bowl of white chocolate and add about 4-6 drops of green food dye. You can also use green candy melts and melt those the same way.

Transfer to a zippered bag and cut the tip off.

Create a tree with the green chocolate and then sprinkle with holiday sprinkles and top with a star.

Things To Note:

  • If you need more than 10 brownies, you could make two batches of brownies and probably have enough chocolate to decorate them. I added extra to be sure I had enough.
  • Make sure you use oil-based coloring to color the chocolate. Water based food coloring will cause the chocolate to seize. You can also use green candy melts and melt and drizzle those instead.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container to avoid them from getting hard.
  • You can heat these in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds and top with ice cream for a warm treat.
