My son is double-dipping on his birthday treats this year! His birthday fell on the first day of school this Fall, but at the end of last school year you might remember that I posted about making worm brownies for him to take to school for summer birthdays! He is still in love with space (and brownies) and we came up with these fun Solar System Brownies that are created easily by adding a few toppings.If you want to make your brownies from scratch, you can follow my recipe for this delicious homemade brownie at this post: Peep Bunny Brownies. These brownies are chewy and gooey and oh so good. You can double the batch or use a smaller pan to make them thicker.
How To Add the Solar System:
- Buy some star-shaped sprinkles for the stars. Sprinkle them on top of the brownies when the brownies are about 3/4 of the way finished baking. It will help them stay on the brownies if they are added when the batter is still a little gooey and they can melt a bit and stick onto the brownie.
- To create the sun, we bought yellow gumballs from Party City, you can buy bags of all one gumball color there. When the brownies are cooled and cut push the Sun gumball into the brownie.
- If sending to school you might want to make sure it is okay to have gum in the classroom!
