Three ch-ears for all things Mickey! We love finding new ways to put our Mickey Mouse cookie cutters to use. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday or just looking to share some sweetness, bake up a little magic with this festive brownie recipe.
- 1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- A pinch of salt
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter over low heat in a medium-sized saucepan. Once melted, add sugar, stirring with a wooden spoon.
In a separate bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Mix into the pan until completely combined. Remove from heat.
In another bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla extract. Fold into saucepan.
Pour brownie mixture into a 9×13 baking pan, spreading the mixture with a spatula. Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely before using your Mickey cookie cutter.
Cut out Mickey shapes with your cookie cutter. Add sprinkles or toppings of your choice.
To create a Minnie bow: Melt red candy melts in the microwave or over low heat on a stovetop. Use a spoon to drizzle candy melt into a bow shape onto wax paper. Let dry. Once set, carefully place bow on top of brownie.
