What better way to celebrate Leap Year than with a fun dessert that will leap right off your serving plate?
My oldest daughter is crazy about frogs, so she helped me whip up these easy and adorable Frogs on Logs. Betty Crocker Brownie Mix and Chocolate Icing made these come together in a snap!
First, we used a Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Family Size Mix but baked it in an 8” x 8” pan….we want those brownies nice and thick! When cooled, cut in half, then cut into 12 rectangles.
Next, remove brownies and carefully smooth edges so they form a log shape. (At this point I also popped them in the freezer for a few minutes so it would be easier for my daughter to dip them -- but that's not necessary).
Then, spoon out half of a can of Betty Crocker Chocolate Icing into a microwave-safe bowl and cook for 30 seconds, until melted…yum!
Dip each of your brownie “logs” into the melted chocolate and set on wax paper or parchment. Spoon the remaining icing into a freezer baggie and snip off a corner of the bag. Squeeze out lines and swirls to create wood grain on your logs.
For the finishing touch, add some gummy frogs to the top! Awww…these two are in love…
Be sure to watch them carefully, these treats have a tendency to leap away!
