Homemade Easter Treats: DIY Cross Brownies

Our wonderful parents usually fill the kids Easter baskets with plenty of store bought goodies, so I like to put a few homemade treats in their baskets from us. These cross brownies are quick and easy and point to the purpose of celebrating this holiday.

Make a batch of brownies, Better Than Boxed Brownies, Cake Mix Brownies, Black Bean Brownies or Peanut Butter Black Bean Brownies for gluten free versions, or your own favorite recipe.

After they have cooled, either use a cookie cutter or knife to cut out cross shapes. I used a knife and made these crosses 3 inches wide and 4 inches tall. That way the remaining pieces were 1 inch squares (or could be cut in half to make 1 inch squares).

If serving for dessert you can frost with regular frosting, but if you want to package these, I suggest spreading melted chocolate over the top. (Here is how to and how not to melt chocolate.)

Sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles while topping is still soft. Allow chocolate to harden before packaging.

What are your favorite Easter treats to give?
