What is a Cosmic Brownie?

My kids love the Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies. My kids were not surprised when I made this copycat version of their favorite fudgy chewie brownie.

They are a rectangle of chocolate goodness! Then the brownie is topped with this creamy icing that just melts in your mouth. The colorful candy pieces just completes the brownie.

How to make cosmic brownie recipe:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • First, combine the dry ingredients and make the brownies according to the box mix instructions.
  • Prepare baking pan by spraying it with cooking spray, melted butter, or parchment paper.

  • Second, pour brownie mix in prepared pan and bake the brownies
  • Once toothpick is inserted and comes out claim. The brownie is done. Let the brownies cool completely.
  • Next, while the brownies are cooling to room temperature, make the fudge topping. Heat up the whipping cream in a sauce pan. I like to do this over medium heat.  Pour the chocolate chips into the the cream and stir until the melted chocolate and the mixture is smooth.
  • Now it is time to pour that delicious chocolate mixture all over the top of the brownies. I use a spatula to get a smooth top. If you like chocolate ganache, you will love this.

  • It is pretty simple to get the icing smooth. The spatula helps to smooth out any wrinkles or places that still need icing.
  • Finally, sprinkle the M&M’s on the top of the icing! Make sure to do this right away so the chocolate will stick to the brownies.  Put the brownies in the fridge so they can set. This takes about an hour and then you can serve the cooled brownies.

Use Chocolate Icing for other desserts:

This icing is great on your favorite cupcake or cake recipe. It’s amazing and so simple. Just don’t skip this step on the brownies and buy one already made. The brownies won’t taste the same and this recipe is so easy.

I make this Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe from scratch and you would love this icing on it!

We love homemade cosmic brownies but this icing is equally delicious on cake as well. Yum! One bite and you will be hooked because they are just like the ones from the grocery store. I think they are actually better!

More ideas to try:

  • You could even use seasonal M&M’s for the rainbow chip to make these for different holidays. Pretty pastels for Easter, pinks for Valentine’s Day, Red and Green for Christmas. There are so many options you can make.

The perfect dessert: 

This icing is so good and combined with the brownies, it’s even better. One batch goes pretty quickly at my house so I like to double the recipe. That way we have one pan to eat at home for dessert or after school snacks.

I use the other batch to cut into squares and pop into sandwich bags. This is perfect for school lunches and I can just grab and go in the mornings.

My kids are super excited to have this fun treat in their lunch box and I’m happy that I was able to make it at home.

Brownies are always a hit. We also love this homemade butterscotch brownies recipe for another tasty brownie to try.
