Christmas Brownies with Strawberry and Cream Santa Hats

I know cookies are a Christmas must-make. But who can resist a big batch of chocolatey brownies?

Full of traditional holiday flavors like eggnog, peppermint, and gingerbread, they’re rich, sweet, and always a hit.

And, of course, there are a few fun options that the kids will adore.

So, crank up the carols, head to the kitchen, and make some Christmas brownies.

1. Reindeer Brownies

Honor Santa’s hardworking team of sled pullers with these adorable reindeer brownies.

After all, how else would we get our Christmas presents without Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and co.?

Decorating these dairy-free brownies is a terrific way to get into the Christmas spirit.

Use pretzels for the antlers and red M&Ms for Rudolph’s nose. How easy is that?

2. Peppermint Candy Cane Brownies

I think we all go overboard on the candy canes during Christmas. I know I always have a bunch leftover once the tree comes down.

That’s why these fudgy brownies are the perfect Christmas treat. Their minty flavor pairs well with the richness of the dense chocolate. 

And the sweet peppermint frosting with crushed candy canes on top is to die for.

Oh, and there’s also a luxurious layer of chocolate ganache, making this ideal for chocoholics!

3. Christmas Tree Chocolate Brownies

These Christmas tree-shaped triple chocolate brownies are just what you need to bring the Christmas cheer.

All you need is a boxed brownie mix (or your go-to recipe), a knife, and green candy melts.

Bake the brownies, let them cool, then cut into shape. It’s that easy.

Of course, the green zigzags make this extra fun. And though you don’t need the sprinkles, you can’t deny they look incredible!

4. Christmas Tree Brownie Bites

If you’re looking for an eye-catching Christmas treat, look no further.

What could be more spectacular than these brownie bites with mini-Christmas trees on top?

These tall, frosted brownie bites are perfect for sharing at dinner parties. And all it takes is a little piped green icing.

Serve these at your next holiday gathering, and they won’t be around for long.

5. Christmas Brownie Truffles

As much as I love a box of traditional chocolates, I go weak in the knees for truffles.

They’re rich, soft, and insanely indulgent.

So, why not spoil someone you love this year with these no-bake brownie truffles?

They’re the perfect homemade edible gift. 

Coat each homemade truffle in holiday-colored sprinkles, and try not to eat them all yourself!

6. Christmas Cheesecake Swirl Brownies

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, you deserve these delectable brownies.

This cheesecake and brownie combination is to die for, and it looks as good as it tastes.

This festive treat dazzles, from the red velvet brownie to the white and green cheesecake on top.

If you make this for gifting or parties, be sure to save yourself the biggest slice!

7. Grinch Brownies

These brownies are the ultimate festive pairing: mint and chocolate. One bite is sure to turn Christmas brownie skeptics into fanatics.

Just be sure to bake a big batch because everyone will be begging you for more!

The secret to their success? Crushed mint Oreo cookies.

Of course, the Grinch will go gaga over their bright green finish.

But if you add colorful M&Ms and maybe some gummy worms to the top, they’ll also make terrific Halloween brownies too!

Sweet Buckeye Brownies with Peanut Butter and Decadent Chocolate

8. Buckeye Brownies

Nutty for peanut butter? Then you’ll go nuts for these buckeye babies.

From the decadent brownie base and creamy peanut butter center to the chocolate on top, think of this dessert like a superior peanut butter cup.

It’s a must-try for peanut butter lovers!

9. Gingerbread Brownies

With a touch of molasses and warming spices, these gingerbread brownies are the perfect winter warmer.

Swap out your yearly gingerbread house for these glorious fudgy brownies. These are so comforting on cold winter nights. 

And let’s be honest, they’re easier to make too.

This recipe has a beautiful mixture of warmth and fudgy goodness. The only thing missing (in my opinion) is a drizzle of caramel.

Of course, even without the sweet sauce, you’re in for a real treat with this recipe.

10. Eggnog Cheesecake Brownies

Eggnog is a little polarizing. I know plenty of people that love it and plenty that can’t stand it!

But thanks to this simple recipe, I know everyone will become an eggnog fan.

The subtle hints of vanilla and nutmeg add deeper flavors to the velvety cheesecake.

However, the nutmeg is only needed depending on the brand of eggnog you use. So, be sure to check the label before you add any.

11. Christmas Brownies (a.k.a Mincemeat Brownies)

Need to whip up a delicious treat in a hurry? I’ve got you covered. 

These brownies are super simple to make and only take 10 minutes to prep. They’re also a great way to use up leftover mincemeat. 

My family can’t get enough of these magical baked treats!

Loaded with spices, orange zest, and mincemeat, these brownies are bursting with Yuletide cheer. 

Make sure you leave these brownies to cool after taking them out of the oven. Cut them too soon, and they will fall apart.

It’s hard waiting, but it’s worth it!

12. Mini Santa Hat Brownies

Are you still wearing a Santa hat? Good, you’ll need it for this one! 

Santa hats made from strawberries and icing make these a showstopping dessert.

The creamy mascarpone buttercream pairs perfectly with the rich chocolate brownie. 

The creative design makes these an excellent centerpiece for parties and family gatherings.

And it helps that they’re insanely easy to make!

13. Chocolate Marshmallow Peppermint Bars

I’m a huge fan of marshmallows with fudgy brownies. But this recipe takes it up a notch.

Marshmallow, chocolate, and peppermint all combined in one moist and irresistible brownie.

You won’t be able to pass up this dessert heaven. 

And since you’ll use mini marshmallows and crushed candy canes on top, these Christmas brownies look just like a mug of hot cocoa.

So why not make a cup and enjoy?
