I love Wynona Ryder and I think she’s crushing it as Joyce, the single mom of two teen boys, in Stranger Things. When she comes up with the brilliant idea to communicate with Will, I could feel this in my bones. Moms: we get the job done. My kids wanted to make something fun reflecting on some of our favorite moments with Joyce so we came up with Stranger Thing Alphabet Wall Brownies.
I was completely NOT into Stranger Things until about a week ago. That’s when I talked to Tessa and she fangirled Stranger Things with me.
And she totally convinced me to give it a go. And I’m glad I did!
Because: yup, I’m obsessed with Stranger Things including all things 80s from the Stranger Things.
Stranger Things: Alphabet Wall Brownies
This is probably as easy as you can get when it comes to making a Stranger Things dessert. Just like the Upside Down Sundae, I’m all about making life easy when it comes to the kitchen!
To make these Alphabet Wall Brownies you need just a few ingredients:
- Brownie mix from a box – look, I said easy!
- Gel decorating icing (any color- we used green though!)
- any ball-shaped candy
Stranger Things Alphabet Wall Brownies Instructions
This was an easy 3 step process. 4 steps if you count letting the brownies cool!
Bake the brownies. We actually got a little boughie and did the cookie drops inside a bownie thing. So it was a mixture of cookie and brownie that we made.
Let the brownie completely cool.
Start in a corner and “string” your green gel icing from side to side, creating a string of Christmas lights.
Place the ball candy on the line of green icing.
When it’s finished, you’ve got your own little alphabet wall from Stranger Things!
We considered adding the letters with icing but didn’t want to wait, to be honest.
The finished brownies looked too good to wait on.
