Easter Brownie Method
Time to get baking! Here’s how to create this fun and creating Easter carrot patch.
- Start with the brownie! Cook it according to packet directions and give it plenty of time to cool before decorating. I made mine two hours ahead (when the kids were out), so they weren’t tempted to dive right in. Pop it on a cake board ready to decorate, or even a chopping board will do!
- Ice the brownie (again with the packet icing, or create your own).
- Crush up your oreos. We grabbed a bowl and the kids took it in turns crushing them up with a spoon. Yes, it got nice and messy, but they had so much fun doing it!
- Use a spoon (or clean hands) to sprinkle the oreo ‘dirt’ all over the brownies. The messier, the better!
Now it’s time to make some carrots!
- Heat your white chocolate in a saucepan on low heat. You can even create a water bath on the stove to melt it – whatever your preference!
- Once the chocolate starts melting, add the food dye. Remember, less is more! You can always add more as needed to get it darker.
- Dip the strawberries! We set up some baking paper next to the stove and dipped the strawberries, then laid them to air dry. They’re not perfect, but the kids had a perfectly fun time doing it.
Now for the fun part: constructing the Easter brownies. The great thing is, you can do this however you like! Let the kids go wild adding the ‘carrots’, chocolate eggs and the little bunnies.
