  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Simple Almond Icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • Red heart sprinkles


To make the Brownie Teacakes:

  1. In a mixing bowl, add melted butter and cocoa powder. Blend.
  2. Next, mix in sugar. Once sugar is incorporated, add eggs.
  3. Add vanilla extract and vanilla yogurt. Blend well.
  4. Add, flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Only mix until blended. Do not over mix.
  5. Pour onto a half size baking sheet (cookie sheet and spread evenly. You may want to flour the bottom of the pan or use a silicone mat to avoid sticking and provide an easier release after baking.

  6. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the sheet comes out clean.

  7. Cool completely.

To make the Simple Almond Icing:

  1. In a bowl, mix powdered sugar, cream and almond extract. If too thick, add 1 teaspoon of cream at a time. If too thin, add 1 tablespoon powdered sugar at a time. The consistency should be thin enough to drizzle off a spoon or squeeze out of a bottle AND not ooze off the brownie teacakes.

To assemble:

  1. Cut brownie sheet into 1 inch by 3 inch pieces. This recipe will make 90 teacakes if baked in a half size baking sheet (cookie sheet).
  2. Drizzle or pipe almond icing onto each teacake.
  3. Add red heart sprinkle to each teacake. Icing will act as a glue for the sprinkle.
  4. Let icing set a dry a bit before plating to avoid sticking or smearing.
