Start by lìnìng an 8″ x 8″ square bakìng pan wìth alumìnum foìl and then spray ìt wìth cookìng spray. Bake the brownìes accordìng to the package dìrectìons and allow them to cool completely.

You know that excited feeling you get when you walk down the Christmas aisle and it’s Just. So. Sparkly. You just want to buy everything? (It can’t just be me who feels that way?) When I was in university, my sister and I shared a townhouse and the first Christmas we spent there together, we went to the hardware store and bought a Christmas tree, tinsel and tons of ornaments to put on it.  And I mean TONS of ornaments (and lights for that matter…).

It was the first time we were let loose down that sparkly Christmas aisle, and we fell in love with everything we saw. There wasn’t an empty branch on the whole tree by the time we were done! We were so proud of our tree that we called up my parents, and even our grandparents, and invited them over for dinner that night, just so they could admire our very first Christmas tree.
