LEGO Brownies

This week at my daughter's daycare, they celebrated The Week of the Young Child. Each day they have a different theme and have activities to do with the kids. To conclude the week, today they invited parents to join the kids for lunch. It's always nice to get a chance to talk with the other parents and to see the kids interact with their friends and teachers.

I thought it would be fun to make brownies decorated as LEGOs as a treat for the kids. My original plan was to use this new Calphalon pan I have that is similar to a square cupcake pan. I actually like the brownies with the edges better which this pan is great for. However, my plan failed miserably when I ended up absentmindedly, (I blame baby brain), not spraying the pans with non stick spray. So what I had was a big pile of crumbly brownies. Not to worry, I knew we could still make this work. Brownie pops! Similar to cake pops, I just took the brownie crumbs and compacted them into lego brick shapes. These would especially appeal to those that like dense fudgy brownies.  I suppose you could decorate these two different ways. I used colored frosting to decorate these, but you could also use colored chocolate too. It looks best if you have chocolate or frosting that is the same color as the M&Ms you are using for the "LEGO bricks".

Look how cute they came out! You could make these out of cookies, rice krispie treats and a variety of other desserts. Easy to make even for the baking-scared crowd!



Have a great weekend everyone!
