Christmas Recipe N°3

Pinterest is an evil beast – it promises so much and yet, the reality is often fraught with smashed glasses, stomped feet and using your floury apron to mop your tears.

Then I saw this lovely thing on another wordpress user’s blog and I became a little bit overexcited. I actually think I could make this!

I guess the key will be to only put them together shortly before serving, as there is the potential for the sloppy sagging of cream.

Aren’t these Santa Hat Brownies just so cute?  I was looking for a fun and simple holiday treat and pinterest help me.

A festive dessert to get everyone into the spirit of the holidays.  It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!
