Spring Carrot Patch Brownies are a chocolatey, ooey-gooey, OREO-crumble-covered, delicious Spring treat. These cute garden brownies are great to make for dessert on Easter, or for any Spring gathering.
I am a total sucker for a good brownie recipe, and these babies really gained my approval.
You can’t get much more chocolate packed into one little treat than with these carrot patch brownies or a batch of homemade cosmic brownies.
You will start with a rich chocolate brownie, slather it in creamy chocolate buttercream icing, top it with OREO cookie crumbles, and then finish it off with even more icing. Oh my! How can you not love these things?!
How to Make Spring Carrot Patch Brownies
We made our Spring carrot patch brownies from scratch, but if you would like so save some time you can certainly make your brownies from a boxed mix instead.
In that case you will simply start off at step 5, icing your brownies.
Whether you use boxed mix or make the brownies from scratch, the important part is really those decorating steps anyway!
The OREO cookie crumbles help to give the tops of the brownies a dirt-look, which is perfect to serve as the base of your carrot patch.
Then, the orange and green colored icing come together to form the tops of the carrots sticking out of the ground.
I hope that you and your family enjoy this tasty Spring dessert recipe!
