These festive Red, White, & Blue Patriotic Brownies are a must have for any summer party!
Red, White, & Blue Patriotic Brownies
I took my two favorite recipes and turned them into one firecracker of a dessert that’s perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day. Really, they are perfect all summer long!
The colors are so festive and really turns ordinary brownies into beautiful party-worthy brownies.
4th of July Brownies
I almost always make almond buttercream frosting when making chocolate cake (I just think the flavors are divine together), so it was a no-brainer to make up my almond buttercream for these 4th of July brownies.
My brownies call for coconut oil, but you can certainly swap for a canola oil if you’d like. The coconut oil is my attempt at making these brownies a tad healthier.
Seriously, in my head that works so I’m gonna go with it. Coconut oil equals healthy brownies! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Ha!
I’m totally digging my new Epicurean Pastry stands. I was sent two to try out and I love them. I wasn’t sure what to expect since they store flat and are very light weight, but I think they are my new favorite pieces. One of the best parts…they are dishwasher safe!
How to Make Red, White, and Blue Icing
I love making frosting. I love making favored frosting. But what I love most is eating anything covered in it. I get a lot of questions on how to make amazing frosting and besides the recipe below, it comes down to using the right type of gel food coloring. Skip the stuff found at the grocery and craft stores.
Wondering how to make red, white, and blue icing that’s swirled??? First make a big batch of white and then divide it into 3 bowls. Color one bowl red, one bowl blue, and leave the 3rd bowl white. Open up a large pastry bag that’s fitted with the tip that you want to use (I used this one for these brownies). Add blue frosting to two sides of the bag, then add red frosting in between each of the blue stripes. Finally, add the while frosting to the center of the bag and gently press all the frosting evenly down toward the tip. There ya have it!
