Isn’t this Quick and Easy Carrot Patch Brownie so cute? It’s so easy to make and so fun to decorate. I’m pretty sure this will be in every home at Easter time.
Back in 2017, my daughter made this adorable brownie for Easter that we originally saw from Delish, but made our brownie from scratch. We also made carrots from fondant, as we don’t have strawberries at hand during those times. You can watch my daughter’s video here: Quick and Easy Easter Carrot Patch Brownie.

- You can use strawberries and blueberries to decorate your Easter brownies as shown on the image above.
- If you want a chewy brownie, you can replace vegetable oil to butter.
- Using brown sugar helps create a good texture on the brownie, you are welcome to do half and half. Instead of using 2 cups of white sugar, you can use 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of brown sugar.
- Grease the pan and line it with greased parchment (baking) paper will help the brownie rise evenly.
- Brownies are meant to be crispy in the outside and soft and fudgy in the inside, but if the middle is too soft, there would be a problem in cooking times or temperature. Baking it more than what the recipe says or making adjustments in the oven temperature may do the trick.
