Duncan Hines sent us two packages of mixes so that we could make the recipes below. These are both super easy, yet really yummy. Evan was also able to stir and feel like he was a big part in making them.
CLOVER PATCH BROWNIES
Bring a bit-o-luck to the kitchen by creating these shamrock-covered Clover Patch Brownies using Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix.
• 1 pkg Duncan Hines® Family Style Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix
• 1 pkg pre-made marzipan or fondant
• green food coloring
• green toothpicks
1. Bake brownies according to instructions on box. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut brownies into squares.
2. Meanwhile, knead green food coloring into marzipan or fondant until desired shade of green is achieved.
3. Form small (1-inch) 3-leaf and 4-leaf clover shapes out of fondant or marzipan. Be realistic and make a lot more 3-leaf clovers than 4-leaf clovers.
4. Stick clover shapes on top of green toothpicks.
5. Insert little bunches of clovers onto each brownie.
