How to Make LEGO Brownies - What You Need

What to do

1. Buy or bake a batch of brownies (if you’re making them yourself, we’d recommend the best ever brownie recipe on BBC Good Food).

2. Once your brownies have cooled, cut them into the shape of square and rectangular building blocks.

3. Take a packet of ready-to-roll icing and roll it out until it’s about 3mm thick.

5. Squeeze some writing icing onto the top of each brownie and stick a piece of coloured icing on top (the writing icing will help keep it stuck in place).

6. Roll out small balls of icing and press eight down onto each rectangular brownie, and four down onto each square one. This is where you’ll really start seeing your brownies look like building blocks.

7. Make a selection of brownies in different colours and serve!
