If you like Cosmic Brownies you will love this Copycat Cosmic Brownies Recipe. I find myself buying Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies WAY to often. All of my kiddos love them and one box does not go very far in this family, ha ha! Last week I decide I would attempt to make my own homemade Cosmic Brownies.
Copycat Cosmic Brownies Recipe
Making CopyCat Cosmic Brownies at home is so simple. Making brownies at home is less expensive than purchasing the store bought boxes. I remember when Little Debbie Snacks were priced at $0.89 per box. We are now paying close to $2 per box. I think it is crazy! Maybe I am just getting old, lol.
You can use sprinkles or mini M&M’s to get make your brownies “cosmic”. I purchased my sprinkles at Remke. I love that they sell bulk sprinkles that they use in their bakery. I always find sprinkles that I can not find elsewhere.

My family loved this CopyCat Cosmic Brownies Recipe. I am pretty positive that I will be making these every weekend once school starts. They all like to take Cosmic Brownies in their school lunches for dessert. I am looking forward to the savings I will be scoring by making these DIY Cosmic Brownies at home.
