|I made a few with other decorations.|
If you are a fan of Pinterest, you have probably seen the "brownie" ornament picture that seems to be all over the Internet. How the photo was erroneously labeled brownie, I don't know. It is taken from a Betty Crocker site and is in fact, a fudge filled ornament. Not to be dissuaded by this, I decided to figure out how to make these ornaments with actual brownies inside. I will warn you that they will not look as smooth as fudge as brownies tend to rise and then fall, forming a lightly flakey crust and tend to sink in the middle. These shortcomings are well concealed by the addition of icing.
19.8 ounce Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies (9x13-inch size)
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon mocha powder
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
Combine ingredients and mix until smooth. Add:
½ cup Ghiradelli semi-sweet mini chips.
Place 16 (2½-inch ) ornament cookie cutters on parchment lined cookie sheet. Put 3 slightly rounded cookie scoopfuls of batter in each ornament. Use a spoon to spread the batter evenly throughout the ornament. Bake at 350° for 19 minutes. Cool on baking sheet and iced and decorate as desired.
