2 things always call out to me when you see a cosmic brownie: the frosting and the sprinkles! Let’s talk frosting first!

Little Debbie brownies always have a shiny, rich layer of chocolate fudge frosting on top.   We’re making a similar frosting for this recipe that’s going to be just as shiny as the packaged brownies!  When you pour the frosting on the brownies let it sit for a few minutes to set completely.  You can even put them in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set them quicker!

Chocolate Birthday Brownies

The other thing that makes Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies special is the sprinkles!   I used cosmic ball sprinkles on them, as well as added rainbow sprinkles for my own personal touch!   The ball sprinkles are a little hard to find, but if you have a baking store they will most likely have them!  Amazon of course has them.  If all else fails, you could use Sixlets candies!

Sprinkle Brownies in Pan

Can you put sprinkles in the oven?  I recommend not adding the sprinkles on these brownies until after you pull them from the oven – this will result in much brighter colors and prevent your sprinkles from melting!
