Updated Nov 23, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 box (18.3 oz) Betty Crocker™ fudge brownie mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
  • 1/4 cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting (from 16-oz container)
  • Green and red M&M's® Minis™ milk chocolate candies, as desired
  • Betty Crocker™ Decorating Decors sugars (assorted colors), as desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, letting foil hang 2 inches over sides of pan. Grease bottom and sides of foil with shortening or cooking spray. Make brownie batter as directed on box. Spread in pan.
  • 2
    Bake as directed on box or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 hour. Freeze in pan 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Using foil to lift, remove brownies from pan, and peel foil away. Cut out 8 gingerbread men using 3-inch gingerbread man cookie cutter. Gently push brownie out of cutter each time. Set aside end pieces for snacking. If cutter gets sticky, wipe clean with damp paper towel before cutting again.
  • 4
    Spoon frosting into small resealable freezer plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut small tip from one corner of bag. For each gingerbread man, squeeze bag to pipe small dabs of frosting to attach candies for eyes and buttons. Decorate as desired using frosting and colored sugars (use photo as guide).
  • 5
    Let stand about 30 minutes or until frosting is set. Store covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To easily line bottom of pan, tip upside down, and form foil around bottom and sides. Flip pan over, and place foil insert inside pan for a perfect fit!
  • tip 2
    Try extra brownie pieces as a topping for ice cream sundaes!
