Sprinkles For Breakfast St Patricks Day Recipes Mint Chip Ice Cream Brownie Bars

Mint Chip Ice Cream Brownie Bars


Mint Chip Ice Cream Brownie Bars | Sprinkles For Breakfast

For a long time I believed box brownies were better than homemade brownies.

I even had a favorite brand/type/flavor and everything (*Betty Crocker Supreme Triple Chunk*). I also knew that you had to take them out 3 -5 minutes early in order to get the fudgy goodness.

But I am here to tell you that I am a changed woman.

I know, I didn’t think it was possible either. I LOVED box brownies. I always told myself the homemade version took WAY more time and effort. And that the homemade brownies tasted too fancy (I honestly don’t even know what that means, but it was something I told myself for many years).

But you see, when I lived in Germany for a few months, I ran into a problem. They didn’t have Betty Crocker’s Supreme Triple Chunk box brownies. Actually, where I was living, they didn’t have any box brownies at all. So when I got an overwhelming craving for some chocolatey goodness, I had no choice. I had to go with a homemade version – and it was MAGICAL!

But why am I talking about brownies so much? Well, it is because this new homemade brownie recipe is the base for these Mint Chip Ice Cream Brownie Bars. A twist on my favorite Mint Chip Ice Cream Pie, I decided to step it up this year and go BIG by adding in the homemade brownie base. The result was absolutely delightful. And it is still a semi-homemade dessert because the ice cream and fudge topping are store bought.

So if you are looking for something fun and delicious for St.Patrick’s Day this year, I highly recommend you face your homemade brownie fears and GO for it! I promise you that you are going to LOVE the results.

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌

She’s not like a regular spreadsheets. She’s a COOL spreadsheet. Also quick shout-out to Olive’s poop bag hanging out of the drawer in the back!

But The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is truly amazing because it includes our advanced pricing calculator that factors in your costs, labor, overhead and profit in order to give you a final price (but you don’t have to do any of the math!!) You never have to stress about pricing your goods and services again.

But that’s not all.

Here are some other things it does:
- makes pricing quick and easy for anyone who works with food
- specific ingredient section to cost out your recipes
- 100% customizable (gives you final prices based off your own costs and materials)
- all the formulas and formating are already done for you - you just have to input your data in a few cells
- includes a cost per unit calculator
- lessons to help you figure out how much you should charge per hour and how much profit you should make!

Right now you can get it for 50% off. Check the details with the link in my bio.

The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is actually designed to be the opposite of a “regular” spreadsheet. It is there to make things LESS stressful - becuase we have done all the hard (and boring) work for you.

It makes pricing quick and easy. All you have to do is input your info in a few cells and it automatically gives you the price you should charge for your goods and services.

It’s the best thing ever.

Pricing was one of my biggest struggles in the beginning. I was always overthinking it and trying to analyze what other people were charging.

But with the Pricing Calculator, I no longer had to stress out about it. The calculator simply just told me what I needed to charge. It was AMAZING and a total game-changer.

And now I want to help make pricing easy for you too. Check the link in my bio to see how you can use the calculator in your business!
