Bring a bit-o-luck to the kitchen by creating these shamrock-covered Clover Patch Brownies using our Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix.

Baking Instructions:
  1. Bake brownies according to instructions on box. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut brownies into squares.
  1. Meanwhile, knead green food coloring into marzipan or fondant until desired shade of green is achieved.
  1. Form small (1-inch) 3-leaf and 4-leaf clover shapes out of fondant or marzipan. Be realistic and make a lot more 3-leaf clovers than 4-leaf clovers.
  1. Stick clover shapes on top of green toothpicks.
  1. Insert little bunches of clovers onto each brownie.

I was happy to have the opportunity to review Duncan Hines products! I received Lemon cake mix and Brownie mix. Above are some delicious St. Patty's Day Recipes to make with these two Duncan Hines products. Check 'em out!

I love to make brownies, cakes and cupcakes. Just the other day my daughter and I made cupcakes together! We also love to make the family style brownies with 3 eggs instead of 2, so they are cake like. 

Pick up some Duncan Hines products today and make some yummy St Patty's Day treats!
