Rainbows are forever. But not on these beautiful brownies. Make them and see how fast they disappear!
Nobody’s too old for a good old-fashioned rainbow. You might outgrow your old princess dresses and Lisa Frank may have lost her charm, but rainbows are forever.
These brownies are super easy and quick to make, but they are totally impressive and such a feast for the eyeballs. Use a Betty Crocker brownie mix to get a jump start so you can get on to the fun part -- the frosting, which really is the star of this show.
You could make your own frosting, or you can zip through that part by just using a tub of Betty Crocker vanilla frosting -- and start coloring away!
Use gel food coloring to get more vibrant colors. I always divide the frosting into paper cups for each color. Just use a couple drops of food coloring at a time and stir until the desired shade is reached.
Plop each color in separate plastic Ziploc bags.
Snip the tip off of each bag and pipe stripes of frosting onto your brownies.
Now, since that looks kind of like a family of psychedelic worms, we need too smooth it out. Use a pastry scraper or flat spatula to carefully flatten the colorful worms.
And there you have it. Beauty.
Come on. Doesn't that just bring back the best of everything?
