Game Day Brownies

Game Day tradition divides our family into 2 sides. And no, it’s not about which team or player we support. It’s about baking, decorating and of course – football. Each year we try to make something cute and interesting. And very delicious, of course.

On the Game Day I am the baker, kids are responsible for decorating and dad is ”assigned” to watching the game. Today we are using Pillsbury Brownie Mixes so my job is really easy.

We stocked up on some Pillsbury Brownie Mixes and Frosting from our local Walmart. There are tons to choose from, but we got out favorite –  classic Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and Pillsbury™Creamy Supreme® Chocolate Fudge Frosting. In fact, we got few of them so we have in stock, just in case. 


This is how we mix up a moment (and game day brownies)

We were all involved as we had tasks for each family member.

We baked the brownies according to the box instructions. It’s really easy. If you like, download the  football printable and print it out. Kids loved cutting the balls out and taping them to the sticks (we cut wooden kebab sticks in half and used them).FOOTBALL FUDGE

We waited until the pan was completely cool to cut the brownies into small squares (Use sharp knife and wipe it with paper towel after every cut to get ”cleaner” cuts). Then, we placed the sticks on all the brownies.

Our decorations were very practical. Not only they looked festive and fun, they also were very easy to grab the brownies with.
