I saw this and I thought – “hello next birthday party!”
1 box Betty Crocker* Chocolate Chunk Supreme Brownies Mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg as called for on brownie mix box
15 craft sticks (flat wooden sticks with rounded ends)
2/3 cup (150 mL) semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) shortening
Assorted decorating sprinkles
- Heat oven to 350ºF (325ºF for dark or nonstick pan). Line 8-inch or 9-inch square pan with foil so foil extends about 2 inches over sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray. Make brownies as directed on box. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
- Place brownies in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove brownies from pan by lifting foil; peel foil from sides of brownies. Cut brownies into 15 rectangular bars, 5 rows by 3 rows. Gently insert craft stick into end of each bar, peeling foil from bars. Place on cookie sheet; freeze 30 minutes.
- In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High about 1 minute; stir until smooth. If necessary, microwave additional 5 seconds at a time. Dip top 1/3 to 1/2 of each brownie into chocolate; sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Lay flat on waxed paper or foil to dry.
I suppose this doesn’t exactly fall into the healthy recipes category…but FUN category fits just right. Brownies on a stick would be a treat (chez nous we have a 4 o’clock daily treat where you can have something sweet to power up for the arsenic hour).
