Hi, Everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I know that you may be stuffed with all those Valentine’s chocolates and luscious chocolate desserts, but I’m sharing a dessert idea with you today anyway! Because as far as I’m concerned, you can never have enough dessert! And these Stenciled Bow Brownies are a great one! I saw Martha Stewart do this a while ago, and I’ve been wanting to try it ever since. It’s a great way to make brownies look a little extra special, whether they are homemade or come from a box mix. Here’s how you can make your own…
To make these Stenciled Bow Brownies, first make your bow stencil. You can either make your own like I did, or you can use this one from Martha Stewart. Draw out (or print out) your stencil on a piece of card stock and cut it out carefully. Make sure that the size of your stencil works with the size of your baking pan that you will be baking your brownies in. Then, bake your brownies and let them cool completely. If you need to, trim the edges. Once the brownies have cooled completely, lay your stencil on top and sprinkle the whole thing with powdered sugar. Carefully lift the stencil off and viola! A beautiful bow!
Happy Baking, Everyone! Have a great weekend!
Simply adorable, Maria! What a pretty presentation for a pan of brownies! You’re really creative!
So cute! The bow kind of matches the one on your blog template. 🙂
