While my side of the family doesn't have any Irish in us, my kids have a slight trace of it on my husband's side, so it's all the more reason to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. My kids ask for these shamrock chocolate brownies every year, they aren't overly fancy they are just fun to make!
For a while, we used to dye everything we ate green for St Patricks Day. It was fun for the kids but then what went in green came out green, we'd have green fingers and green stained clothes and toys so we had to shift to a new way to celebrate. We started with our rainbow recipes each year then added in these chocolate brownies and for the adults Guinness Chocolate Baked Donuts with Baileys Glaze.
St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Chocolate Brownies Recipe
We are sure you will love this recipe as much as we do.
Box of your favorite chocolate brownies mix
1 Container of white whipped icing
Preheat the brownies to the temperature on the box.
Prepare and cook the brownies as directed.
Remove brownies from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Once the brownies have cooled, press down the shamrock shaped cookie cutter firmly into the brownies, starting from the upper left corner of the pan. Slowly lift up and the brownie should come out with it.
Gently place the cookie cutter with the brownie in it on a plate and push down a small section of brownie at a time until it is free of the cookie cutter. Continue these steps until you have cut out shamrocks from all the available space.
Ice the shamrock shaped brownies. We used a starburst icing decorator tip, but you can use a knife or spatula as well.
Sprinkle on some Wilton's Shamrock Sprinkles and enjoy!
