Author A Mom's Impression


  • Brownie batter
  • Black icing I used the tube of black from Wilton, so simple
  • Orange decorators sugar
  • Caramel Creams
  • Red yellow, and green gumdrops
  • Hot Tamales candies


  1. Place cupcake liners (I used the silver ones to help mimic a grill) in a cupcake pan, and fill them two-thirds full of your favorite brownie batter, then bake according to the recipe directions. Let the brownies cool completely.Attach a round size 3 tip onto your tube of black icing. Or you can simply put your black icing into a sandwich bag and snip off the corner. Pipe grate lines onto each brownie and let them sit for 20 minutes. Add embers with a sprinkle of orange sugar. Prepare the grill food as instructed below and press it in place atop each brownie:

Kebabs = A caramel cream and red, yellow, and green gumdrops, cut into small pieces + toothpick skewers

Porkchop = one-half of a caramel cream, molded with fingers + black food coloring, applied with a toothpick

Hot dogs = Hot Tamales candies + black food coloring, applied with a toothpick

  1. I debated about using the Swedish fish on top as well, but my husband doesn't ever grill out fish so I decided to leave them off, you can certainly add them if you would like to.
