Fudgy Brownies - Movie Night Treats!

gourmet brownie popcorn bags

Every year, my husband and I host a party on the night of the Academy Awards. It's a big to-do, complete with a red carpet, Oscar bingo, guessing the winners, our friends all decked out in evening wear and lots and lots of food. I always try to find a way to use Fairytale Brownies in at least one dessert that fits the movie night theme.

We always serve popcorn, so this year, I think I'm going to make these gourmet brownie popcorn bags. I found the idea at bakerella.com, which is a wealth of ideas for adorable and delicious baked goods. She baked her own fudgy brownies, but I will use our Original flavor Belgian chocolate brownies to make mine. 

It's pretty simple:
  1. Cut the brownies into the shape of a bag of popcorn, either with a cookie cutter or a knife if you're so inclined. I think I'll make a paper pattern to cut around so they're all the same, and that way I can control the size.
  2. Top the brownies with homemade buttercream frosting (or use a can of store-bought frosting to save time)
  3. Use two popsicle/craft sticks to cover the areas of the bag you want to be white, and sprinkle red sugar over the bag part of the brownies. 
  4. Place mini marshmallows to create the popcorn. Use the popsicle sticks to dent the marshmallows to make them more realistic-looking if you like. 
  5. Serve and enjoy the best brownie popcorn bags you've ever made! :)
