#footballsunday 3.0 : Seahawks 'Skittles' Brownie Bites

Yes, its Tuesday. I got so wrapped up enjoying the weather this weekend, I just couldn't get my self to sit down long enough to write up this blog. But better late then never, right? But now you have enough time to make it for next week's big game against the Broncos.

This week I decided to make some brownie bites with this recipe, topped with some cream cheese icing and skittles. If your a Seahawks fan, then you know the significance of skittles :)

These brownie bites are made with my favorite basic brownie recipe baked in a mini muffin pan. The cream cheese icing is tinted into colors, blue and green and then piped on to the brownies using a wilton 2D icing tip.

Once the icing was tinted, the piping bag was filled with both colors to create the two toned effect. Top with a skittle and you set!
