The other day my youngest son wanted to bake something with me. Of course, any chance I get to bake with my little ones, I definitely fit it in. Now his only request was that they be plain brownies.
Now I don’t know about you, but the word “plain” does not exist in my vocabulary in regards to baking…well, in anything really. I mean look at these Tiramisu Brownies and these Salted Caramel Brownies…definitely anything but plain comes to mind.
But I was more than willing to make some plain with him…on one condition…he got to make his half plain and I got to jazz my half up. We decided to make the brownies using a muffin top pan.
I use mine all the time for muffins and whoopie pies, so it is well worth the money. (I have a muffin recipe later this week using one too!)
The last time I was shopping at Walmart I found these Heath pieces. They basically were screaming at me to put them in the cart, so I couldn’t resist taking them home with me. And while I was there I picked up some Heath creamer…I just knew something yummy was going to happen with the two of them together.
Let’s get started first with some brownies. You have two options…use a box mix or bake up your favorite from scratch. I personally keep boxed brownie mixes on hand for fast easy brownies. I like to call my baking style semi homemade. Anyway, whatever you decide, just make some brownies, but make sure you substitute coffee for the liquid in the recipe. Then spoon about a tablespoon of batter into each muffin top cavity. Bake for 10 minutes and viola! Mini brownie pizzas!
Next make some butter cream using the coffee creamer in place of any milk. Try to resist eating spoonful after spoonful of the icing…it is seriously that good. The last part to these fun brownies is the flower on top. We used the Heath pieces to decorate the tops of these Heath brownie pizzas.
Easy peasy brownie pizzas in no time at all.
Check out some more fun jazzed up brownie recipes:
- 1 brownie mix
- 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 4 Tablespoons International Delights Heath coffee creamer
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup Heath Pieces
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix up brownies according to the 2 egg ingredients on the back of the box. Substitute the coffee for any water called for.
- Spray whoopie pie pan with non stick spray. Place 1 large tablespoon of batter in each cavity of the pan.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges as soon as they come out of the oven. Let cool 4-5 minutes in the pan, then gently remove to wire rack to cool completely.
- Beat the butter for a few minutes or until creamy. Add the salt and coffee creamer and beat again.
- Slowly add the sugar until thoroughly blended. Beat for an additional minute.
- Pipe or spread on top of the brownie tops. Create a fun flower with the Heath Pieces. Store in an airtight container for 4-5 days.
If you don't have a muffin top pan, you can also bake the brownies in a 9x13 pan for about 25 minutes. Frost and cut into squares before adding the flower pieces.
