Cosmic Brownies Recipe

A fudgy brownie base under a layer of creamy chocolate ganached topped with rainbow chocolate chips. These brownies are the upgraded version of little debbies’ cosmic brownies.

I remeber in elementary school, sometimes people would bring cosmic brownies to school on birthdays. I used to think they were the most incredible, but that’s changed because I now know how to make my own brownies and also since I’ve discovered two bite brownies.

The one reason it took me so long to recreate these brownies was because I couldn’t find the chocolate sprinkles. I found them randomly when I went to my local bulk barn to buy cake boards and just picked some up. You can also find them online here. Obviously omitting the chocolate chips will still give you a deliciously fudgy brownie so don’t fret if you can’t get your hands on the chocolate chips.
