Santa Belly Brownies decorating

  • First, remove any lifted brownie particles off of the top of the brownies so it doesn't mix in with the icing.
  • Then, spread a thick layer of red icing on top of each brownie. Scrape off the top with a spreader or knife to make it flat while at the same time following the curves of his belly. Be careful to reach the ends of the top surface without going down the sides.

NOTE: Nutritional labels are estimated and may vary. 


Store brownies, covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for maximum freshness. Freeze in freezer bags up to six months.

Prep Time: 

If one person decorates the brownies, it may take longer than 35 minutes depending how meticulous he/she is. Whereas, an artistic person may take fewer minutes to do the work. I suggest making this recipe with with two people if time is a concern.
