Recently, I have received an order to prepare some treats for a baby boy party, with the theme of Lightning McQueen. McQueen is one of the characters in the Disney cartoon "Car". In this case, we decided to make some traffic light brownies to fit the theme, alongside with some cupcakes and roadsign lollies.
For clean cut brownies, you'll need a sharp knife, paper towel and a tall cup of hot water. For every cut, dip the knife in hot water and wipe off using paper towel. This ensures perfect clean cut without a mess to your fudge / cakelike brownies.

Semi-sweet chocolate chips
How to make traffic light brownie bars:
- Preheat oven to 180C. Spray a 9 x 13'' baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Prepare brownie as package direction. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean. Let cool completely.
- Slice brownie into 3x7cm bars. Pick out the red, yellow and green m&m's chocolate.
- Melt chocolate chips in microwave for 30 seconds. Dip each m&m's into melted chocolate and place on brownie bars to assemble traffic light. Repeat with remaining brownies.
