Santa Hat Brownies

We love baking on the EGG, and brownies are delicious. For the holidays, we like to add a little something extra to get in the Christmas spirit with these Santa Hat Brownies!

Ingredients

1 prepared batch of your favorite brownie mix
24 small strawberries with tops cut off
1 batch buttercream frosting (see below for our recipe, but store-bought works too)

Instructions

Set EGG for indirect cooking (with the convEGGtor) at the temperature designated by the brownie recipe you’re following.

Pour brownie mix into greased mini muffin pans and cook on EGG for designated amount of time.

Allow brownies to cool before spreading frosting on top of the brownies. For best appearance, use a piping bag for the frosting.

Place one strawberry on top of each mini-brownie and top with a dab of icing to create the hat.

Makes 24 brownies.

Buttercream Frosting Ingredients

3 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 cup soft butter
