  • 18.3 ounces brownie mix prepared according to box directions
  • ½ to ⅔ cup milk chocolate frosting
  • 36 candy eyeballs
  • 9 brown M&M's
  • 9 red M&M’s
  • 36 small twisted pretzels for the antlers


  • Prepare the brownies according to the directions on the box. Be sure to use a 9x13 baking pan.
  • Once brownies are baked, allow the brownies to completely cool before cutting into the triangles.
  • Carefully transfer the brownies from the pan to a large cutting board.
  • Evenly cut the brownies into 3 equal horizontal sections.
  • Cut 4 diagonal sections to make a diamond pattern.
  • Then cut the diamonds in half. This should give you 18 full-shaped triangles.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Transfer the triangles to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Using an offset spatula, neatly ice the halved diamonds.
  • Place an M&M at the bottom of one of the triangle ends for the nose.
  • Place 2 of the candy eyeballs in the center of the triangle.
  • Then place 1 pretzel “antler” on the remaining 2 triangle points.
  • Another option is to use a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Beginning on the top edge of the brownies, and working toward the opposite end, cut out the hearts.
  • Carefully frost the heart-shaped brownies with the chocolate frosting.
  • Just above the point of the heart, place the brown or red M&M for the nose
  • Place the eyes in the center of the heart.
  • Just before serving, place the antlers.


PRO TIP: Don’t forget to check the brownie mix to make sure you have the ingredients needed to prepare them.
PRO TIP: Little people would love to be assigned the task of decorating these adorable Rudolph brownies. Plus, their kid interpretations of a reindeer's face would be so sweet.
PRO TIP: If you are not serving the brownies right away, you will need to place the pretzel antlers right before serving. The pretzels will become stale if left out of the package.
