Kids “bugging” you for homemade brownies? Using Kirkland Signature Brownie
Cookies as a base, add colored frosting and candy decorations to create critters
your kids will love to make and eat!
6 Kirkland Signature Brownie cookies
Licorice whips, gumdrops, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips,
white chocolate chips and Kirkland Signature Doublenut cookies,
1 stick ( 4 ounces) butter, softened
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons milk
1. Place butter in a mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Gradually beat in
confectioners’ sugar. Mix in vanilla extract and milk until smooth.
2. Add desired food coloring to small batches of frosting. Spoon frosting into
zip-top plastic bags with a tiny corner cut off the bag to allow frosting to flow
out. Create a lovely ladybug, a buzzy bee or a wacky bug of your own. Let the
kids go crazy! Makes 6 servings.
Ladybug: Spread red frosting over the cookie, leaving a semicircle of cookie
unfrosted for the ladybug’s head. Lay a licorice whip down the center of the
cookie and press into the frosting. For the eyes, make 2 small dabs of frosting
and apply 2 mini marshmallows. Create eye detail and the ladybug’s spots
using chocolate chips.
Buzzy Bee: Make stripes with yellow frosting piped from a zip-top bag.
For the eyes, slice a yellow gumdrop in half and press a chocolate chip into the
cut surface of each half; adhere to the cookie with a dab of frosting. Cut a Kirkland
Signature Doublenut cookie in half and attach to the cookie with frosting to create
wings. Add licorice whips for antennae.
