These Melted Snowmen Brownies are cute aren’t they?
We never really had any Christmas traditions in our house growing up. Mum and Dad both worked and Christmas usually involved a fruit salad and ice cream or Pavlova cobbled together after a late night on Christmas eve. My mother hated cooking and by the time she filled 4 Santa stockings for my sisters and I and tucked herself into bed on Christmas eve at 2 am, the last thing she wanted to do was bake.
My Aunty was the only one who ever baked. The usual suspects, caramel slices, tiny fruit mince tarts and Christmas cake, every year. She brought these to our house wrapped in red or green cellophane on a Christmas plate along with Christmas decorations for the table. Without her there would have been no tradition.
I am still not good at tradition either. I like to bake whatever takes my fancy. I made these because Skater, my son, loves brownies. He hates Christmas baking. Lots of people dont like fruit mince tarts, although I just can’t imagine why not and I can’t promise not to make them before Christmas.
