St. Patrick’s Day Layered Brownies

Cooking with Kids


I get emails from Snackpicks and they sent this one today that had the St. Patrick’s Day Layered Brownies.

This is the recipe or you can click the link to get the recipe with pictures.  The only thing that I will do different is make my own rice treats first.  I have some cereal that I need to use up anyway.

They look good… don’t they?

*Update-  I haven’t made these yet, but think they look great…. so I posted the recipe.  I had a friend/reader bring it to my attention that the first ingredient “Keebler Sandies Simply Shortbread cookies” aren’t even used in the recipe.  Weird .. right.  I went back to the link and can’t figure out where they want you to use them.  So…. If you can figure it out or have an idea please comment and let me know!  Thanks!  🙂  I am thinking I am going to make these and just leave out the first ingredient as in the recipe directions.


Ingredients for St. Patrick’s Day Layered Brownies:

Butter Cream Frosting

  • 1 Stick softened butter
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • Green Food Coloring, just a few drops
  • White Nonpareils
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 11×7 inch baking dish with foil with edges folding over the top of the baking dish and spray with cooking spray. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Pour half of brownie batter into bottom of prepared dish.
2. Place Grasshopper cookies into a large zip top bag and crush with a rolling pin until finely crushed. Place crushed cookies into a medium mixing bowl and mix with softened cream cheese. With a cookie scoop or spoon, place dollops of cream cheese/cookie mix evenly over brownie layer.
3. Top marshmallows evenly over cream cheese layer. Unwrap each Rice Krispies Treats and cut each rectangle into 9 squares. Top the cut up Rice Krispies Treats over marshmallows then, pour remaining brownie mix over treats. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes clean from center. Let cool completely.
4. To prepare frosting, beat softened butter, powdered sugar and milk until well combined. Drop a few drops of green food coloring into frosting to get a nice light green color. Lift cooled brownies out of pan using edges of foil to lift out. Frost with frosting and sprinkle with white nonpareils if desired. Cut squares and serve.
Makes 12 large brownies
