Decorated Easter Egg Brownies


This year for Easter I wanted to decorate eggs and make a fun dessert - I didn't have time to do both so I compromised!  I made egg shaped brownies and decorated those!  I guess you could say I got my "cake" and ate it too! 

Bill of Materials
Brownies
Icing
M&Ms
Egg Shaped Cookie Cutter



First, I baked a sheet of brownies per the instructions.  As soon as they came out of the oven, I used the thick cookie cutter to cut the brownies into the egg shape and allowed them to cool.  I wanted to cut the brownies before they cooled all the way so they wouldn't get too flaky before trying to cut. 




Then, I removed the brownies from the pan by removing the surrounding brownie and using a spatula to lift out each egg.

Next, I iced the brownies using vanilla icing.




Decorating time!  I used the M&M's to decorate shapes and patterns to create fun Easter Eggs!



This dessert would be a great activity for older kids as well! Try different candy, or different colored icing - mix it up!

Confetti Icing


I love all things Confetti - cake, cookies, pancakes, oreos, teddy grahams, and my new favorite - Icing!  I have a new and easy way to decorate baked goods from just two ingredients!

Bill of Materials
Icing
Sprinkles

I suggest using a light color icing because you might not see the sprinkles through a dark chocolate.  You can use the sprinkles that come with icing or buy sprinkles in bulk!

First, pour your icing into a larger bowl big enough to whip it around.  Stir it around to soften the icing up a bit.


Second, dump your sprinkles into the bowl.  If you aren't sure how many you want, start with a few and whip it up. 



Add more sprinkles as necessary.  I like for my sprinkles to dominate the icing!!




Then use icing as you would normally. Either spread with knife or using pipping bag. 




Make sure you use a large enough icing tip for all the sprinkles to flow through - other wise they will get stuck!



Tada!
