Sid suggested to me that I should put some coloured butter cream to decorate this brownie in order to give some intensity of the festive..... maybe.....lol!...... I got to say this recipe is simple and can be done easily and fast especially when there is so many things to do. Brownie can be deep freeze, therefore you can prepare it earlier. I hope you will enjoy this one and I will be posting more christmas goodies on this coming months.
