1/2 teaspoon salt1 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1  In a bowl, mix together sugar, cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, mix butter, vanilla extract, and eggs. Add to flour mixture; mix. Add chocolate chunks and walnuts, if using.

Pour mixture into an 8x8-inch greased and floured baking pan.

3  Bake at 350ºF for 20 to 25 minutes.

4  Let cookies cool completely on a cooling rack.

5  Cut brownies into uniform triangles to make trees. This will make 8 to 10 triangles.

Frost and decorate as desired. Insert peppermint or pretzel sticks into the base of each triangle.

Make the homemade royal icing: Using an electric mixer on medium speed, mix egg whites with confectioners' sugar and lemon extract for 10 minutes or until soft peaks form. Divide into 3 parts. Add red food coloring to 1 part, green food coloring to 1 part, and leave the last one as is.

Use a piping bag with a star or plain tip to decorate. You can also use your favorite store-bought brownie mix for this recipe. Remember to ask for an adult's help for Step 5.
