Shamrock Shaped Brownies
Hello, everyone! I am so delighted to share these Shamrock Shaped Brownies for St. Patrick’s Day!
This is a classic brownie recipe and I make it every time I have a chocolate craving. It takes the base of one of my favorite recipes on my blog, Chocolate Nutella Brownies, and reinvents them for St. Patrick’s Day.
These Shamrock Shaped Brownies can be served plain or you can dust them with confectioner’s sugar and outline them with some store bought icing in either green or white to add a little festive flair.

In this recipe, I use a 3 inch x 2 1/2 inch shamrock-shaped cookie cutter. You can find a cookie cutter like this at your local craft store. I found this one at Michael’s.
If you are going to top them with confectioner’s sugar and/or icing, make sure you allow the brownies to cool long enough so that the topping(s) do not melt off.

- 1-3/4 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour

- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cups organic cane sugar

- 1 cup Canola oil

- Optional: 1-2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar
Kitchen Tools for Shamrock Shaped Brownies
- 9 in. x 13 in. x 1 in. brownie pan
- 3 inch x 2 1/2 inch shamrock-shaped cookie cutter
- stiff baking spatula
- small silicone spatula
- regular baking spatula

Use the shamrock-shaped cookie cutter to cut the brownies, to remove the brownies, cut around the cookie cutter and using a spatula lift up the brownies.
Another idea is that you can serve it with ice cream and whipped cream which would complement the sweetness of the brownies well.
