Ingredients

For the Brownies:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 70%, good quality
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles, St. Patrick's Day themed, green

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly coat a mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and baking powder.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture and stir with a rubber spatula to combine.
  • Portion the batter into the mini muffin tin in a one tablespoon measurement.  DO NOT overfill the muffin hole.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Allow the brownies to sit in the muffin tin for 5 minutes before removing to finish cooling on a cooling rack.
  • Once the brownies have completely cooled, prepare the frosting by gently whisking together the confectioner's sugar, cocoa powder, and milk until smooth and lump free.
  • To check the frosting for the right consistency, use a spoon to scoop up the frosting.  Hold the spoon about a foot high above the bowl.  Turn the spoon on its side and watch the frosting fall from the spoon.  If the frosting falls in a consistent, ribbon-like pattern, the frosting is ready.  If the frosting is too thick and falls in clumps, add half teaspoon of milk and whisk again.  If the frosting runs easily off the spoon, add another 1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar and whisk again.
  • Once the frosting has the right consistency, dip the top of the browning into the icing and lightly shake off the excess.  Place dipped brownie onto a plate and top with sprinkles.
  • Allow frosting to harden before packaging or stacking - about 20 minutes should be fine.  Enjoy!
