Here's a wonderful recipe to make for the holidays. The decorating might take a little time, but the results will be worth it. Won't they look pretty on OUR Christmas tray? :-)

1 (1 lb. 3.5-oz.) pkg. Pillsbury Rich & Moist Fudge Brownie Mix
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
2 eggs

1 (6-oz.) pkg. (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Frosting
1 teaspoon vanilla
Decorator frosting

Line a 13x9-inch pan with foil, extending over sides of pan; grease bottom only of foil. In a large bowl, combine all brownie ingredients; beat 50 strokes with spoon. Spread in greased foil pan.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 28 to 30 minutes or until set. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 1 hour or until completely cooled. Freeze brownies 30 minutes.

Remove browines from pan by lifting foil. Cut into 1-1/4-inch squares. Return to freezer while preparing icing.

In medium saucepan, melt chocolate chips over very low heat, stirring constantly. Add frosting and vanilla; mix well to combine. Heat 1 to 2 minutes or until of desired consistency, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

To coat each brownie with icing, place brownie on fork over saucepan; spoon icing over brownie, coating all sides except bottom. (if icing thickens, heat over low heat until of desired consistency.) Decorate as desired with decorator frosting.

Yield: 48 petits fours
