  1. 1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, line a 9 x 13 baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

    2.Prepare and bake the brownies according to package directions.

    3.Remove brownies from oven when finished and let cool completely on a wire rack. This is important to let cool completely.

    4.Line a large baking sheet/ cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.

    5.Once the brownies are cooled, use the star shaped cookie cutter to carefully cut out the brownies and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

    6.When all the brownies are cut out, place about 1/4 cup of EACH color of candy melts into separate bags.

    7.Close each bag with the corner slightly open and microwave one at a time for 30 seconds, gently knead the candy into the bag and then heat again for another 15-20 seconds until the candy is melted and smooth.

    8.Snip the corner of the bag using the kitchen scissors and gently squeeze the chocolate from the baggie over the top of the brownies.

    9.Allow the chocolate to set and then repeat with the other two candy melt colors. That was fun! Enjoy!
