I recently was at my local Walmart and stocked up on Pillsbury brownie mix and frosting. I love having them on hand. They make it simple and easy to make a tasty treat whenever I need one.
Well, the other day I was wanted to come up with a treat for someone that I was taking a meal to. Their daughter had been in the hospital and I was hoping to help brighten their day. I reached for a box on Pillsbury brownie mix from my pantry to start with and decided to#MixUpAMoment.
I had the idea to made bright and colorful flowers to top the brownies with. So instead of the usual chocolate frosting I use on brownies, I grabbed container of Pillsbury vanilla frosting. I thought it would be the perfect background to showcase the bright flowers I wanted to place on top of the brownies.
Then to make the flowers, I just used some jelly beans. I used some of them just as is and others I cut in half. This helped give each flower a little character and they didn’t all look exactly the same. Then to serve them, I flattened out a green colored cupcake liner and set each of the brownies on top.
These Easy Spring Brownies turned out beautiful and bright. I know the brightened the day of the family I was taking them to. I also thought they would be perfect to serve at a bridal or baby shower or even for dessert for Mother’s Day.
- 1 (18.4 oz) Pillsbury 13 x 9 Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie mix prepared according to package directions
- 1 (16 oz) container Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Vanilla Frosting
- 1 pkg jelly beans
- Frost cooled brownies with the vanilla frosting. Then cut into squares.
- Then use the jelly beans to create a flower on top of each brownie. Use one jelly bean to be the center of the flower and then surround it with other jelly beans to create the petals of the flower. You can also cut the jelly beans in half length wise to make smaller flowers.
