Put a new spin on Easter; serve brownies in bunny and egg shapes - an easy way to make a yummy impression. Even Peter Cottontail would be proud to deliver these fudgy treats!
Simply bake a pan of brownies using your favorite mix or recipe. Cool completely, then smooth on fudge icing. Bunnies and eggs will practically hop out of the pan when you use comfort-grip cutters. These easy-grip stainless steel cutters have extra deep sides, perfect for cutting shapes from thick desserts like brownies, sheet cakes, fudge and crispy rice treats.
Decorate brownies using the pastel palette of the season. Create cute bunny faces by piping icing to make eyes, ears, muzzle and tongue. Finish the eyes with candy-coated chocolate pupils and add a jelly bean nose.
Brownie Bunnies will love sharing the Easter basket with colorful Egg-stra Special Brownies adorned with pink and blue sugar stripes and accents of confetti sprinkles. Everyone will look forward to these springtime treats in their baskets, so hop to it!
