What You Will Need for These Mickey Mouse Brownies

For the brownies:

  • 1 1/2 C unsalted butter (use the sweet cream style, softened)
  • 2 C sugar
  • 1 1⁄3 C brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 6 tbsp fresh-brewed and cooled coffee
  • 4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1⁄2 C Hershey’s cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp instant espresso grounds
  • 1 1⁄2 C flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 – 4-inch Mickey Mouse cookie cutter (a must if you want to have that iconic Mickey shape)

For the white chocolate frosting:

  • 1 C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 12 oz white chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 C sprinkles (choose your favorite colors for holidays, parties, and whatever you like!)
  • 1 disposable piping bag

Make Your Own Mickey Brownies

A great tip for making Mickey Mouse brownies is to first use cooking spray on your cookie sheet and then put parchment paper on top. This holds the paper in place, a handy trick!

In a large bowl, you’ll beat the butter, both brown and regular sugar, eggs, coffee, and vanilla until fluffy. Take a medium bowl and whisk the cocoa powder, espresso grounds, flour, cornstarch, and baking powder. Then gradually beat the dry stuff into the wet stuff.

You’ll spread this all on that baking sheet, bake, and let it cool completely.

And then the magic happens! You’ll use that Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to cut out 12 brownies and move them to a wire rack. Then, make the frosting using your stand mixer. You’ll want to gradually beat in the melted white chocolate here for the best results.

The piping bag will help you make a perfect outline on the edges of the brownies, then you can fill it in. Use an angled spatula to make it smooth and pretty. Top them with sprinkles and they’re ready to go!

For kids, you can omit coffee and espresso. You can also use your favorite brownie mix to cut down on prep time, then cut out the Mickey shapes, frost, and decorate. Check out the full version of this recipe below!
