Fondant Brew Stick Instructions
- Dust your hands and a cutting board with powdered sugar before working with the fondant.
- Remove the fondant from the package and work with your hands to make it soft and pliable.
- Pinch off about 1 teaspoon of the fondant. Using your middle finger and pointer finger, roll the dough in an up and down motion to create a stick shape.
- Set aside on the cookie sheet. Create a total of 24 fondant brew sticks. Allow them to dry overnight.
Witches Brew Brownie Instructions
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray the baking dish with Pam baking spray.
- Using a hand mixer, beat all brownie ingredients together until combined.
- Then, pour the batter into the 9×13 baking dish and bake in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool completely.
- Place the cauldrons on a cookie sheet. Then, using a knife (or your hands), cut the brownies into bite-sized pieces.
- Stuff the brownie pieces into the cauldrons. Set aside and begin frosting preparations.
Vanilla Frosting Preparations
- Using a stand mixer or large bowl and hand mixer, beat together butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy whipping cream until smooth, stiff peaks form.
- Scoop out ½ of the frosting and add a few drops of purple gel food coloring. Add a few drops of neon green gel food coloring to the frosting remaining in the mixing bowl.
- After frosting is dyed, scoop ½ of the green frosting into one side of the large piping bag.
- Then, scoop ½ of the purple frosting into the other side of the large piping bag.
How To Decorate Hocus Pocus Brownies
- Using the piping bag with the two frosting colors, pipe the frosting into the middle of the cauldron.
- Then, sprinkle a few of each type of sprinkles around on the frosting.
- Next, place the fondant stick into the side of the frosting.
