Here is one example of how I made these easy brownies making use of my dome shaped pan by Wilton.
For the caps, I broke Graham Crackers in half and dipped them in chocolate.
I attached Twizzlers and M&M’s to the hat with leftover melted chocolate.
And there you have it, Graduation Brownies.
Memorial Day is widely known as the unofficial start of summer but the true meaning brings out patriotism in many Americans. To make these cookies, I used an old Wilton flower shaped cookie cutter.
The Uncle Sam hats were made from a stencil. I used this pictures for inspiration:
After printing out the picture, I traced it onto heavy paper stock and cut out. Manila file folders work great. Then place on top of rolled out cookie dough and cut out shape with a paring knife.
I would have liked to use mini star decorations instead of the non-pareils but Michaels nor AC Moore had any in stock and I didn’t have time to order them.
Who needs a fondue kit when you can make this quick and delicious chocolate brownie batter dip. For fruit, pretzels, cookies, Graham crackers or anything else you like with chocolate.
