Easy to make and perfect for Easter! You can even use a box mix if you prefer, but this brownie recipe is pretty tough to beat! I did cheat on the frosting and used Betty Crocker-shhhh, the kids will never notice the difference! I put both colors in the pastry bag and piped them together for a swirly look! Happy Easter!
