  • In small saucepan stir semisweet chocolate and butter over low heat until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in brandy and vanilla. Transfer to large mixing bowl. Add sugars and eggs; beat on medium until well-combined.

  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add to chocolate-egg mixture. Beat on medium until well-combined. Stir in cherries and chopped chocolate. In a small bowl, stir together espresso powder and water. Add espresso mixture to batter and stir to combine. Spread batter in prepared pan.

  • Bake 30 minutes. Transfer to wire rack; cool completely. Slice the brownies in half lengthwise. Slice at a diagonal to form 22 "trees."

  • Transfer each tree to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. In a small saucepan, melt 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips, stirring until they are smooth. Transfer the melted chocolate into a piping bag. Cut off the tip and drizzle chocolate across each tree. Finish with green and white sprinkles.
