1

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 40 small muffin cups (1-3/4 inches in diameter) with paper or foil bake cups on cookie sheet.

2

Follow package directions to prepare brownie batter. Fill bake cups 1/2 full with batter.

3

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Cool on cookie sheet.

4

Combine frosting and food color. Set aside 4 brownies to use for tree trunk; frost remaining brownies. Arrange frosted brownies on large tray in a tree shape. Place the unfrosted brownies at base of tree for the trunk. Decorate tree by placing one foil-wrapped chocolate on each frosted brownie. Remove wrappers from 4 chocolates. Place a small amount of frosting in center of unfrosted brownies; place an unwrapped chocolate piece over frosting. Makes 40 brownie cups.

Use this idea, but make the tree using cupcakes (mini or regular size).
