A Grate Gift for Dad via Familyfun.com

This clever trio is a tasty way to honor the King of the Grill on Father's Day.
  • Brownie batter
  • Black food coloring
  • White frosting
  • Orange sugar
  • Caramel creams
  • Red, yellow, and green candy fruit slices
  • Hot Tamales candies
  1. To make a batch of 12, place liners in a muffin pan, oil them, and fill them two thirds full of your favorite brownie batter, then bake according to the recipe directions. Let the brownies cool.
  2. In a small bowl, mix one or two drops of black food coloring with 1/4 cup white frosting. Transfer the frosting to a ziplock bag and snip a small section from the corner. Pipe grate lines onto each brownie and let them set for 20 minutes. Add embers with a sprinkle of orange sugar.
  3. Prepare the grill food as instructed below and press it in place atop each brownie.

    Kebabs = A caramel cream and red, yellow, and green candy fruit slices, cut into small pieces + toothpick skewers

    Pork chop = two thirds of a caramel cream, molded with fingers + black food coloring, applied with a toothpick

    Hot dogs = Hot Tamales candies + black food coloring, applied with a toothpick
