Razwick's Brony Brownies

For my last minute challenge entry, I bring to you, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Apple Jack themed brownies!

Razwick's Brony Brownies

by Razwick

Okay, so this was a bit of an adventure!

The goal: Make one recipe of blondies, separate it into three equal parts, and make each of those parts represent a different pony.

Ponies represented: Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Apple Jack

First off, I used a really simple and easy blondie recipe:

1 1/3 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Then, the ingredients you'll need to ponyize this recipe:

1 oz apple jack or other apple liqueur
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
red and blue food colouring
craploads of sugar sprinkles

For the initial blondie recipe, cream the sugar and butter, add the egg and vanilla, and then stir in the dry ingredients. Very, very simple. If you feel the need to combine the dry ingredients before mixing them into the butter mixture, feel free, but in this case, I didn't bother.

Next, separate the dough out into bowls to begin the customization!

Also, preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Note that in this picture, I've already added the cocoa into the Pinkie Pie mix (whoops).

Choose one to add the cocoa to, and once you've mixed that in, add as much red food colouring as you see fit until it's as pink as you would like. Unfortunately because of the chocolate, it'll end up a little more red than pink, sort of like a red velvet-ish colour.

To another, add half an ounce of the apple liqueur. You may add more if you wish, just make sure you don't make the dough too runny or it won't bake at the same rate of the other brownies.

For the Rarity mix, you can choose not to colour it if you wish, but I decided to have a go at making the dough purple. If you're going to do this, mix the food colouring first, in a separate bowl. I added a bit too much blue so they came out a tad grey, but adding a few more drops of red seemed to mostly correct it. Here I mixed about half of the white chocolate chips into the dough, though if I were to do it again I might just leave it as a topping, but I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate, so if you like it, feel free to keep this step.

At this point, I filled three cups in my muffin tray with each mixture, don't forget to grease your pan first! If you'd like to do this in square pans or whatever, that would work just as well, I just feel that it's simpler to make brownies like this, and it gives you nice portion sizes. Plus you don't have to cut squares out and mangle the first brownie you lift out like you do after baking them in a square pan.

If you'd like, toss some appropriately coloured sprinkles on the dough now. This is entirely unecessary, since you'll be adding more sprinkles later, but WWPPD*? Bake this for 18-22 minutes and you'll end up with these little lovelies:

You'll note here, that in the picture, I've poked a little dent into the middle of the Rarity brownies in preparation for the next step. Now, you're going to melt the rest of the white chocolate chips, two rounds of 30 seconds in the microwave, stirring in between should do the trick. When it's melted, spoon the chocolate into the little divet you made, and then sprinkle some sugar sprinkles into the chocolate. It's best to use purple or blue sprinkles, but I suppose I can't stop you from breaking the fashion rules, just know that Rarity would be disappointed with you. I also spread the chocolate over the whole top of one of them to see how it looked, so do whichever you think looks better.

And voila, Rarity brownies!

And now for the others! Here's where you're going to want to whip up some butter cream icing. I am not even remotely willing to tell you guys how I made the icing for this, just know that I am apparently out of icing sugar, stores aren't open on Sundays where I live, and even though it didn't turn out that bad, improvised icing isn't nearly as good as normal icing. The internet has many recipes that can help you, I however, do not.

Once you've made your icing, split it into two bowls, and in one, add the rest of the apple liqueur. If this makes it too runny, add a touch more icing sugar to even it out. In the other bowl, toss some more red food colouring in there to make it as pink as you would like.

Spread the icing on the appropriate brownies, and add sprinkles to the Pinkie Pie brownies, and you're all done!

Note that despite my endorsement of excessive sprinkles throughout the rest of this, Apple Jack brownies are not allowed to have sprinkles. It would offend her sensibilities.

Yes, the icing looks weird on the Apple Jack ones. Don't. Ask.

So, apologies to the rest of the ponies, I wasn't clever enough to think of something for you, and just slapping some rainbows on a brownie for Rainbow Dash just seemed entirely devoid of creativity. Plus, you know, boooo Rainbow Dash, go work out or something, brownies aren't for you!

Overall I think that these were a success, or at least I'll call it a success since 3 of them immediately disappeared into my roommate's face, and even my cat ate a piece of one. Apparently the icing wasn't even that bad, but I'm still never going to make icing without icing sugar again... since, you know, I probably shouldn't have tried in the first place. But it was Pinkie Pie brownies! It needed to be done!

Enjoy!
