This is the treat my daughter took to school to hand out on her birthday. Homemade brownies layered on top of edible Easter grass and topped off with a bunny Peep on a toothpick. We put each one in a cello bag and tied them with a ribbon. A cute treat, don’t you think?
After photographing this I started to think how perfect this could be for an Easter dessert, a bunny themed birthday party, a baby shower (you could change the color of the bunny to be blue for a boy!), and any sort of spring celebration. And who doesn’t love a good chocolate brownie?
These homemade brownies are ooey gooey delicious. If you want a good from scratch recipe I am here to share. It is actually right off of the Nestle Toll House Cocoa powder label. My bestie from college made these once when we were visiting and it was love at first bite!
Nestle Toll House Chewy Cocoa Brownies –
- 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter melted
- 2 Tbsp. water
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour (I actually substitute wheat flour and it works fine)
- 3/4 cup baking cocoa
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13×9 baking pan. (I like to use a pan that is smaller to make the brownies thicker and more gooey!)
Combine sugar, butter, and water in large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl; stir into sugar mixture. Stir in nuts. Spread into prepared baking pan.
Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
