Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies


When I was a kid, my Mom would always put a Cosmic Brownie in my school lunch once a week. Not the healthiest, but they were my favorite and I looked forward to that treat every week. Now, they seem to be hard to find in my local stores so I can’t indulge in my favorite treat very often…until now. These Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies are just like the “real” thing!! One bite and any Cosmic Brownie lover will instantly agree that they’re perfect!

Little Debbie fans will love this copycat recipe! These copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies are as close to the real thing as you can get at home!

To store these, I like to cut them and then wrap each one in plastic wrap and place them inside of an airtight container. It makes it easier to send them to school with Emma and keeps them fresh. I’ve never frozen them, but if you try would you let me know how they turn out? I’d love to see if they could be made as part of a oamc session!

While the oven is heating, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl then add the eggs, cream and vanill and stir until combined.

Add in the Cocoa powder and mix well then add in the flour 1/3 cup at a time. Make sure you stir very well between each addition and seriously resist the urge to taste test your batter. Okay, you don’t have to do that…taste test away!

Pour your batter in an 8×8 or 9×9 inch pan that is lined with lightly greased parchment paper. If you want a thicker brownie, use the 8×8. If you want a thinner, use the 9×9 size. Bake at 350˚ until a toothpick comes out clean, 45-55 minutes.   Remove and let cool.

Now it’s time to make the frosting! Yay frosting!!

In a microwaveable bowl combine the Chocolate and ½ Cup Heavy cream.  Microwave on high for 30 second intervals stirring after each until the Chocolate is melted and smooth.  Pour over the brownie in the pan and smooth to the edges. Sprinkle with M&Ms and refrigerate until set.
