I love all things lemon and I love brownies, so one day I was thinking and decided that there must be a way to make lemon brownies. All the gooey chewiness of the brownie and the fresh flavor of the lemon. I googled recipes but didn't come up with much that looked like what I wanted so I kinda made my own version of the recipe. I used butter instead of oil because it complimented the lemon and made it extra delicious, but you can use oil instead of the butter.
Lemon Cake Mix
Lemon Jello Box (Small)
1/2 Cup of Butter Softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine the cake mix and the jello mix. Add in the butter and mix with a spoon until crumbly. (Try to mix a little as possible for best results.) Then stir in the eggs until just combined. Pour batter into a greased 9x9 inch square pan or for brownie bites, a mini muffin tin. Bake for 15 minutes for the square pan or 10 minutes for the mini muffin tin. Allow brownies to cool before frosting.
1/2 Cup Butter Softened
3 - 3 1/2 Cups of Powdered Sugar
2 Tbsp of Lemon Juice
Yellow Food Coloring
Yellow Sprinkles and Lemon Head Candies (optional)
Beat butter until smooth. Then add the powdered sugar and beat until all the lumps are gone and the frosting is very stiff. Add in the lemon juice. Add in the rest of the sugar a spoonful at a time until you have the consistency that you want. Add 5 drops of yellow food coloring or more if desired to get the yellow color you want. Frost brownies or pipe onto brownie bites and decorate with sprinkles and candies.
