Celebrate National Brownie Day with these tasty trees

National Brownie Day is this week (December 8th), and while regular brownies are good, this over-the-top recipe is extra special for this time of year. Make these tree-shaped treats for your next holiday party or even just for yourself (no shame). And did we mention this recipe is also gluten-free? Bonus!
