Supreme Chocolate Brownies for St-Patrick’s day

Chocolate Supreme Brownies

Good morning everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend and a good Monday! Can you believe St-Patrick’s day is just around the corner? Seems as if we just celebrated St-Valentine’s day with chocolate treats not too long ago. Still, being the chocolate lover that I am, I was already missing chocolate treats, so, I wanted to share this delicious recipe with all the chocolate lovers out there: Supreme Chocolate Brownies for St-Patrick’s day, borrowed this one from our recipe book “ Les Meilleures Recettes Hershey’s ”.

Disclaimer: not recommended for anyone attempting to loose or maintain their current waistline.

Chocolate Supreme Brownies book

I put my own spin on this one by using these star molds I bought for St-Patrick’s day. Please let me share with you this recipe and don’t forget, you can use any mold to make these fun treats for your family.

Here are the ingredients you need when baking brownies:

Chocolate Supreme Brownies ingredients for St-Patrick's day www.nowathomemom.com

When I was taking the pictures of the ingredients for this post, my son was sitting at the end of the table in his high chair and threw a tantrum because he wanted to grab the chocolate chips. This is my hubby trying to appease him by giving him a smaller portion of chocolate chips:

It didn’t work, even if we tried to calm him down, he ONLY wanted those in the white bowl:

Here is looking at me while I’m taking a picture of him, begging for daddy to leave him alone:

Finally his daddy gave in:

Now, that Nate was distracted, we got more chocolate chips and added them into the brownie mixture (directions below). Don’t worry, we didn’t let him eat all the chocolate, he just wanted to transfer chocolate chips from bowl to bowl.

Pour the mixture into the individual star pans:

This is how the brownies turned out, so delicious and moist inside filled with chocolate:

This is the other side of the brownie, see how pretty the star looks:

We could’ve eaten the brownies as is but I wanted to decorate them with icing:

I added green food coloring to the icing:

this is how the color of the icing turned out:

This is the first brownie I decorated:

See, how fun and pretty these are; LUCK for St-Patrick’s day:

This one was my favorite, a lucky star. It tasted great but I think I over did it with the icing:

How fun do these brownies look?

Believe it or not; I ate two brownies as soon as they came out of the oven and one more when they were ready to be served:

What do you think? Will you be baking fun treats for St-Patrick’s day this year?

    Looks wonderful, I love to see your son helping with the baking. It is good to start from the early age.
    This Saturday I and my daughter plan to make some cup cakes. She is having friends for tea on Sunday so we plan to bake and decorate them with an Easter theme.
    Let see what will come out.

    Ingrid, Thanks for sharing as always. What I like most about this post is Nate’s participation. He makes it looks sooooo easy that I’m going to try it. I also like the extra touch of a star cutter to top of the Brownie. Thanks for the DIY of course, and also for stopping by my blog always. Be Blessed, Mtetar

    • now at home mom says:

      My pleasure Mtetar! 😉 I am really glad you enjoyed this post and hope you will give it a try! Having Nate around in the kitchen is not always easy but he loves it, so I can’t say no to him and he love’s getting on our kitchen stools or the bench to reach for all the ingredients! Thank you Mtetar for liking this post! 🙂
