Sweet on Brownies

Brrr!  Baby, its cold outside!!! Nothing’s better on a cold day than heating up the oven (and your belly) with a warm baked treat. We’ve been missin’ brownies a lot lately so we decided that our goody this week had to be some sort of brownie version. We concocted a recipe for Brownie Sandwiches with maple buttercream filling.  Warm brownie maple scrumptiousness.  Simple and yummy!

Brownie Sandwich

Brownie Sandwiches with Maple Buttercream
For the brownies:
2 boxes of your favorite brownie mix
For the maple buttercream:
1 container of buttercream frosting
Maple syrup
1.) Preheat your oven to 350°. Whip up the brownie batter according to the directions on the box.

2.) Bake the brownies in a divided bar pan (we used one that made square bars) for 12 to 15 minutes.

3.) Allow the brownies to cool for about 3-4 minutes, and then carefully move them to a cooling rack. Using a very thin, flexible spatula to move them will help keep them from falling apart!

4.) While the brownies cool, make the buttercream. Combine the buttercream frosting and maple syrup. Add maple syrup one tablespoon at a time until you achieve the desired flavor. Pipe or spread the maple buttercream onto the bottom of half the brownies, and gently sandwich a second brownie on top of the maple buttercream.
