To make the fondant brew sticks, dust your hands and a cutting board with powdered sugar before working with the fondant.

To make the brownies, preheat the oven to 350 and spray the baking dish with pam baking spray.

Using a hand mixer, beat all ingredients together until combined.

Pour batter into the 9×13 baking dish and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cooling completely.
