Day 11 of Christmas crafts- ice skate brownies

I found these super cute ice skates on the taste of home website. We went to my boyfriend's holiday party  and we needed to bring a dish so I thought these would be fun, especially for the kids.


  • brownie box mix (the taste of home website has a good brownie recipe, I just didn't have time to make it)
  • miniature candy canes
  • 1/2 cup Andes candy cane chocolate (optional)
  • ice skate template

Start by pre-heating your oven. Then make the brownies according the back of the box. Fold in 1/2 cup of candy cane Andes candies or you can crush some miniture candy canes. Spoon batter into a greased baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Trace ice skate pattern onto cardboard and cut out for template. Using the template and a sharp knife, cut out skates from brownies. For skate blades, use knife to trim the curved end of each candy cane. I added carmel to a few of the brownies, but then I didn't like how that looked.  Hope you enjoy!
