These Spiced Christmas Tree Brownies are unbeatable this Christmas. They are infused with warm, seasonal spices and a dash of port. These brownies are one of my favorite recipes for Christmas desserts and they are easy to make too! Don’t worry if you don’t have any port, you can substitute with mulled wine or red wine.

Start by melting butter and chocolate over a bowl of hot water. Beat eggs, caster sugar, and vanilla extract and add the clementine zest and juice, port and spices. Mix until just combined. Combine with the dry ingredients before transferring to a baking pan. Bake the brownies in the oven. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Decorate the brownies with icing zig zags and star-shaped sprinkles. Add a chocolate finger to make the trunk and serve once the icing has set!
