Brownies with Swiss Meringue Buttercream and Sprinkles

Brownies with Swiss Meringue Buttercream and Sprinkles

Fudgey, gooey, sweet brownies. Oh my gosh these are so good! Way better than those box mixes and really easy to make. They can be changed up to really any flavor. Just drop any add ins before baking (such as chocolate chips, nuts or candies) or swap the Swiss Meringue Buttercream for a cream cheese icing. Or leave them plain. Really it's up to you. 

Let's get started. Here's what you'll need. 

  • 3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of espresso powder (or 2 tablespoons of instant coffee) 
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil (separate from above) 
  • 3/4 cup of boiling water
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1  tablespoon of vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • Swiss Meringue Buttercream (recipe here
  • Sprinkles of your choice

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Next get your pan ready. Spray a 9x13 pan well with nonstick cooking spray, and line it with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper, make sure to grease and flour the pan well.

Once they're cooled enough, or not, we iced ours still warm, ice the top with the buttercream and top with sprinkles. Tada!
