Christmas Treats for The Holiday Season

Connor Ostadali

It’s that time of year again, Bobcats! The holidays are right around the corner. Christmas traditions have already begun, and I have found some really cool treats you, or anyone else, can make! After you enjoy your feast, why not settle down for some fun and decorated desserts. I have found three easy treats that look delicious and are easy to make!

The first treat I have found is a Christmas reindeer brownie. It is an easy recipe that takes about a total of about 2 hours and 55 minutes to make. The recipe is a basic brownie base, but instead of being cut into square shapes in a pan, it is cut into triangles and decorated with many sweets. Marshmallows are used to look like the white part of the eye, while chocolate chips are used to make it appear to have a pupil. Candy canes are used to create the two ears for the deer. And finally vanilla wafers are used for the base of the nose, and M&Ms are put on top of the wafer to look like a red nose. To find out the full recipe, visit this link:

Next, I have found a Christmas brownie tree. Just like before, it is an easy recipe that takes about 2 hours and 50 minutes to prepare and make the entire treat. Any brownie mix can be used, whether it comes from a box, or make it yourself, it will be just as good. When the brownies are done, cut them into a triangular shape to form the tree. From there, use straight pieces of candy canes to make a trunk on the tree. Then use green, or any color, frosting to make zig-zag lines going up the brownie to look like the leaves. From there, white sprinkles can be used on the frosting to make it look like littles pieces of snow on the tree. To find out the full recipe, visit this link:

Finally, the last treat is a cupcake Christmas tree. Unlike the last two, this is a bit harder recipe to make. It takes about a total of 1 hour and 50 minutes to make. First, you need to make as many mini cupcakes as you want, the more you use, the taller the tree will be. When all of the cupcakes are made, set a ring of them on the bottom of a plate and begin to stack them. Toothpicks can be used to hold the cakes together so that way they don’t fall over the higher the tree goes. Next, green sprinkles are used as the leaves on the tree, and any other colors to make it look like ornaments. And Finally, any sort of candy can also be used on the sides to make it look better such as candy canes or gummy worms. This one is a bit of a challenge but I’m sure all of you can make it.

Happy holidays, Bobcats! And enjoy making some delicious Christmas treats for both you and your family!!
