For Father's Day this year I decided to go a bit over the top (not unusual for me) and make my dad these amazingly manly (but also cute) grill brownies. The brownies are baked in cupcake liners for indiviual servings and topped with sprinkles to emulate fire, black frosting for the grill grates and different types of candy to represent the meats. I couldn't share this recipe fast enough with you all, and I cant stress enough how easy these were to make!!
- 1 package brownie mix
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup oil
- 2 tbsp. water
- gold sprinkles
- vanilla frosting
- black food coloring
- caramel cremes
- fruit slices candies
- hot tamales
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners (I made 9 brownies total, but feel free to make more or less!)
Mix brownie mix, egg, oil, and water together until well combined. Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full and bake for 22-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Meanwhile, make your grey frosting by mising a 1/3 cup frosting with 2 or 3 drops of black food coloring. Now you can start to put together the "meats". To make the steaks, unwrap a caramel creme and mold with your fingers until it forms a steak shape (I went for a T- bone look).
To make the kabobs cut the fruit slices into small pieces. Also cut two caramel cremes into pieces. Line the pieces up on a toothpick to create a kabob combination.
To make the hot dogs, use your grey frosting and draw little "grill marks" on your candy. I did this by putting the frosting in a ziplock bag and then cutting the tip off, squeezing the frosting out in little lines.
Once the brownies are done baking, wait until they are completely cooled before decorating. To decorate, add sprinkles to the center of each brownie to look like fire. Using your ziplock bag of frosting, pipe grill grates over the sprinkle covered brownie. Lastly, place your different meats amongst the brownies.
You are sure to impress with these Father's Day treats!!
