Cosmic Brownies {Little Debbie Copycat Recipe}

Cosmic brownies, just like the ones you ate during lunch at school. Only better, because they’re homemade!

Cosmic brownies, just like the ones you ate during lunch at school. Only better, because they're homemade! // Recipe on PassTheSushi.comEver noticed, for a kid, summer lasts forever. Fooooor.Evvvv.Eeer. The time ticked by slowly, even though your days were filled with sunshine and laughter. Occasional family trips felt like days, even though it was really only an afternoon. And you couldn’t wait for school to start, to see all of your friends and show off that new 101 Dalmatians side slung backpack you scooped up.

OK, that last one was probably just me, and only in the second grade. Once. I swear.

Now, it seems like summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye, and I didn’t even get the awesome summer camp trips. Before I know it, all of my friends are talking about how their kidlets are returning for another year, and I start to fear the return of school bus traffic and annoying college kids that need crossing guards to help them walk properly.

When I laid eyes on these Cosmic Brownies a while back on Amanda’s blog, Fake Ginger, I was taken back to brown bag lunches and school days all over again. In hard contention for the number one spot on my childhood favorite list, right up there next to the TastyKake, Cosmic Brownies were always a joy to find in my lunch.

So, if you’re packing the kids up and wondering what you can sneak in for a surprise, or are like me and just need an excuse for some brownie noms, try these on for size.

Traditional Cosmic Brownies come 2 to a package. Just enough to fill your inner fat kids left cavity, but it is really all you need for a great afternoon snack.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this recipe. My daughter and husband will have WARS over who gets the last cosmic brownie in our house. I hate them myself, too rich for me. But to be able to make these at home and put off the arguing and blaming over where the last one went? You are my hero!

these brownies look so sinful. I would love to dig into at least one piece. The chocolate ganache on top makes them even harder to resist! And the sprinkles ... so cute!

Love it! My stepdaughter went back to school this week. Might have to slip one of these into her lunchbox and score some "brownie points"! ;)
