Fudgy Sprinkle Brownies
Wow, Fudgy Sprinkle Brownies are to die for. Yes, a really trite saying, but truly these brownies are terrific. They start with my favorite Brownie recipe and include a few twists and turns along the way. I included a ton of sprinkles in the brownie batter as well as dumping them on top of the luscious fudge frosting. Overkill??? Not on your life! 🙂
Back in February our church hosted a youth weekend activity called Disciple Now Weekend. Or, The WKND, as we called it. Saturday everyone was going to be hanging out at church for lunch. Pizza was on the menu. I got a call from one of the host home parents who works a lot with the youth wondering if I’d be interested in making dessert. I’m always up for making dessert so I said YES!
They needed dessert for 100. So I made four different kinds of brownies including my favorite Chocaroons, Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chunk Brownies and Coconut Pecan Pie Bars. Since I made two batches of each recipe it was close to 200 pieces. I wanted to use ingredients I had on hand. Plus, I was trying hard to use up about 10 bags of pecans and 4 large containers of sprinkles (left over from Christmas). This recipe allowed me to kill two birds with one stone. I used up a couple of containers on sprinkles and part of a bag of pecans.
As it turned out, the kids LOVED these brownies. There were none left even though I made two batches (48 brownies). Seriously, who can resist chocolate and sprinkles? If you’re looking for a “knock your socks off” brownie recipe, you’ve got to give these Fudgy Sprinkle Brownies are try. They’re perfect for any kind of social gathering, tailgating party, even holiday baking. But be warned in advance!! You won’t come home with any leftovers. 🙂
Fudgy Sprinkle Brownies are divine.

Fudgy Sprinkle Brownies are loaded with chocolate and have a fudgy sprinkle icing.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the brownies.
Add eggs, sugar, cocoa and vanilla.
Combine with an electric mixer or whisk until smooth.
Add flour, pecans and sprinkles.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spread into a greased 9×13″ glass baking dish.
Bake at 350 for about 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool completely before adding icing.
I used these ingredients for the icing.
Melt butter over low heat in a medium-sized saucepan. Add cocoa and stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
Add powdered sugar and milk and whisk until smooth.
Add salt and vanilla.
Whisk until smooth.
Spread icing over top of brownies very quickly or it will become unspreadable. Sprinkle the sprinkles lavishly over the top. Press down very slightly so the sprinkles will adhere to the fudge frosting. Allow icing to set up about 30 minutes before serving.
Fudgy Sprinkle Brownies are marvelous for tailgating parties or office parties.
