These patriotic star brownies are chocolate dipped and then drizzled with red , white and blue . Topped with sprinkles this is a super cute dessert for all of your summer events. I don’t know about your family but mine loves brownies in any shape or size . Dipping just about anything in chocolate is always welcomed at my house. I wanted something a little different for the upcoming 4th of July weekend and got inspiration from Chocolate dipped heart brownies. These brownies can be enjoyed anytime of year but especially those holidays you want to show a little patriotism like 4th of July or Memorial Day.

What you will need to make these  Patriotic star brownies :

Things you need to know about this recipe :

  • If you are in a pinch you can buy the already baked Pillsbury brownies at Sam’s and start from there
  • Don’t waste those scrapes , cut them in bit sized pieces and serve them
  • Brownies freeze well. My heart brownies I froze them already decorated a few weeks a head of time and let them defrost for about an hour
  • Walmart sells the really small bags of candy wafers. Check there before buying the big bags because you won need much. I always store my bags of unused wafers in the freezer . The red and white can be used at Christmas.
  • If you can not find the Ghiradelli wafers you can use a chocolate almond bark. Almond bark is a little sweeter though

Let’s make Brownies !!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a Jelly Roll pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper. Jelly Roll pans typically measure 15.5 x 10.5. In a large mixing bowl add both brownie mixes and eggs .

Don’t throw away those scraps from the brownie pan. Cut them in tiny bite size pieces and serve them.
