School holidays always call for a fun activity: why not bake and play at the same time? Your favourite brownie recipe is transformed into a beloved game! The biggest challenge: not to eat all the brownies before the game is finished.
Noughts and Crosses Brownies
- 1 box brownie mix
- 1 can milk chocolate frosting
- 1 cup Jelly Belly Valentine’s Mix, That’s Jewel Bubble Gum, and Jewel Very Cherry
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a 22cm square baking pan with foil and coat with vegetable cooking spray.
Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and make smooth. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 38 to 43 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
Invert the brownie from the pan and remove the foil. Spread the top of the brownie with the chocolate frosting. Refrigerate frosted brownie until firm, about 1 hour.
Cut brownie into 5cm squares, making sure to clean the knife after each cut. Or use a 6cm heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes, as close together as possible, making sure to clean the cutter after every heart.
Use the red Jelly Belly beans to make X’s and the white Jelly Belly beans to make O’s on top of the square brownies. Cover the heart brownies with the pink Jelly Belly beans.
