Incredibly easy Frosty Christmas Tree Brownies made with only 3 ingredients from the dollar store.
This is the second in my series of easy and inexpensive recipes made with ingredients and tools found at the dollar store. As of this writing, the total cost of this recipe was $5.50 Canadian dollars or $4.00 US dollars at my dollar store Dollarama in Canada. Obviously, you can shop anywhere!
You will need:
- 1 box of brownie mix (any brand)
- Ingredients necessary for the brownie mix (the Pillsbury mix I used required an egg and some oil; if you use a different brand, you might need different staple ingredients or possibly even just water)
- 1 package of mini candy canes
- 1 chocolate Santa (any other chocolate is fine; I chose the Santa because it was the cheapest chocolate available in the store)
Of course, all dollar stores are not equal. My dollar store is Dollarama. You may or may not be able to find these ingredients at your local dollar store, but of course you can shop anywhere you like. I chose the Santa because I needed to melt chocolate, and for 150 grams, at $2 that was the cheapest chocolate available. This is low-quality chocolate, but for a quick drizzle I don’t think that matters. I actually found that this chocolate melted more smoothly than chocolate chips!
