One way to celebrate Earth Day, April 22nd, is by making some yummy Animal Cookie Brownies to put in your kids lunch boxes. Colorful and fun, and made with short cuts, for a quick and easy recipe.

If you’re attending a Spring or Earth Day party this year, these cookies and brownies would be the perfect dessert to bring.


1 Package of sugar cookie mix

1 Package of brownie mix

1 Bag flaked coconut

Green food coloring

1 Box powdered sugar

Decorative red icing

1 Box of Bunny crackers

1 Box of animal cookies

animal cookie cutters

cookie sheets

Measuring cups and spoons

Bowls & wooden spoons

8″ x 8″ or 9″ x 9″ pan

Follow instructions on your brownie and cookie mixes, you will need eggs, butter, oil, flour and water in most mixes.

I did the brownies first, as they take a lower temperature and take longer to bake. While brownies are baking  mix up the cookie dough and roll it out on a floured surface. Cut the cookies out and place them on the cookie sheets, to go into the oven when brownies are done and the heat is adjusted.

For the icing and green (grass) coconut,  put 2 tablespoons of water and 3 to 4 drops of green food coloring into a bowl and stir.  Pour 1/2 the bag of coconut into the bowl and stir the coconut until it is green. Prepare icing, following instructions on Powered Sugar box and add a couple drops of green food coloring.

When brownies come out and cookies go  in the oven, and when brownies are cooled, icing the tops of the brownies with a layer of green frosting and sprinkle the green coconut on top, while icing is still moist. Take your animal cookies and place 3 in the grass (coconut) standing up right on each brownie.

When cookies come out of the oven and are cooled, take your decorative red icing and make bows, eyes or other embellishments on the cookies. Place the brownies on a platter and the cookies in between them.

Optional: To make the bird nest platter, take wheat colored Aspen Wood Excelsior and pack it in the bottom of a round basket or tin container with a 1/2″ lip and place a clear platter over the top.
