DIY Christmas Treats

1 2 3

Have you ever tried Pinterest craft ideas yourself? How did it work out? We tried a Christmas treat recipe so you don’t have to. There was a batch of regular brownies made and Mrs.Harrison made a batch of gluten free brownies. It seems easy but for a novice baker and decorator it can be a struggle. Here’s how they turned out!

If we could change some things we would have changed the type of icing, and gotten more fluffy icing. We also would have cooked the regular brownies all the way. They were undercooked on accident. These treats, although didn’t look pleasing, tasted amazing! The trees and baskets are made with the same ingredients.
