Bunny Basket Easter Brownies are cute and tasty!
Easter is only a few weeks away and I love everything Easter related. The food, Easter egg hunts, the decorations, you name it, I love it all. This week is spring break in our area. Unlike a lot of local families, we won’t be traveling anywhere this year. I have a few local staycation ideas in mind including utilizing our local passes for Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark at Boyne Mountain, the local library and taking a few spring break classes at Crooked Tree, an art center.
Aside from hanging around town, I also plan on working around the house (I’m in major purge mode) and trying out some new recipes including these Bunny Basket Easter Brownies. What better way to spend spring break at home than trying some new recipes and inviting the kids to try them out. My kids LOVE taste testing my fun treats and snacks. I am always trying to think of fun desserts and treats and today I felt like chocolate brownies.
These bunny basket Easter brownies use a box mix and store bought frosting. If you prefer homemade, you can easily swap your favorite homemade brownie recipe for the box mix.
