Sorry I haven’t gotten to blog that much lately guys. It’s just been a little hard with school and all of my activities. Now that I’m in competitive fencing, I can’t even do Broadway Bound anymore- its just too much work ! Hey, speaking of fencing, I was in a tournament yesterday and it was really so hard! It was my second one that I have competed in and I was still so nervous. But guess what!? I got a bronze metal! (and I was fencing all older kids and mostly boys so I feel pretty proud about it). My mom and Mimi would say “Go girl power!” Now I have 2 bronze metals! WOW!! I can’t wait until the day that I will come here and I can tell you guys that I got a gold metal in the future.
Now, about these cute little brownie cups. Coco and I get to go on New Day Northwest with my mom tomorrow morning (Monday, March 21) and we are going to show you how to make these cute little things. This isn’t really a recipe, but more an idea of how to do this.
These are so easy because you can buy brownies or make them in a mini cupcake tin. Then we put the little brownie cups in a cupcake paper liner. Then you add vanilla frosting and dip them in coconut.
One of the parts that I liked the best was that you get to dye the frosting with yellow, you can even dye the coconut yellow! I just love food coloring! If you don’t know how to dye coconut, it is so easy you won’t believe it! You just take a really little bit of powdered food coloring and mix it in with shredded coconut, P.S. it’s called tinting .
So once you spread some frosting on the top of the brownies, you can dip them in the yellow coconut or white coconut. Then we decorated with candy eyeballs and candy bunny ears. Also, we used slivered almonds for the chick beak and a heart shaped sprinkle for the bunny nose. We used a little extra frosting to stick everything on. Then we put them into a Jumbo egg carton and they fit perfectly!
I think these are the cutest thing that we made at all and I love them. Maybe you would like to make these for your Easter dessert!
