Cookout Brownies

I created these desserts for a family picnic celebrating Father's Day, but they would be perfect for an outdoor picnic or tailgate party. —Jenny Sturma, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    These are really cute. They taste good, but are very time consuming to decorate. Also, we used black gel which does not set up so we had messy hands after eating. The tamales do not stick well with the gel either, but the store was out of the frosting.
