  • 1 box of Double Fudge Brownie mix
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 1 box of mike & ikes
  • Black icing for writing
  • 1 package of 4-inch lollipop sticks
  • Nutella or chocolate sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl combine brownie mix, water, and oil. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes and pour batter into a greased muffin tin.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. While the brownies are cooling, grab a handful of mike & ikes and cut them into half-inch chunks and place them on a skewer; they should resemble a kabob.
  5. Use the black icing writing tip and draw three lines on the red mike & ikes to form a “hot dog.”
  6. Spread a spoonful of nutella onto a brownie muffin and carefully insert 3 lollipop sticks into the bottom, creating the grill legs.
  7. Top the brownie muffin with the mike & ike kabobs and hot dogs; enjoy eating and displaying these brownie grills at your father’s day party!

2. Chili & Cornbread Bread Bowl

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl combine cornbread mix and water. Stir until well incorporated and pour into 3 greased 4-inch cake pans. Bake in the oven for 35 – 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
  3. If you’re making chili, begin the chili now.
  4. Remove the cornbread from the oven and let cool. Use a spoon and remove the center of the cornbread bread bowl.
  5. Fill with chili and top with sour cream, cheese, and chives (or whatever father’s day toppings your family prefers) and enjoy!

3. D-A-D Pancakes

  1. Combine pancake mix and water in a bowl; once well mixed, use a funnel and pour into a squeeze bottle with a small spout.
  2. Using the squeeze bottle, write “DAD” in pancake batter on a preheated griddle. Cook through and flip.
  3. Top your father’s day pancakes with sprinkles, whipped cream, or the syrup of your choice.

4. Chicken & Waffle Sandwich


  • 2 cups of Belgian Waffle mix
  • 2 cups of water
  • 4 strips of fried chicken
  • Condiments of your choice


  1. Preheat the mini waffle maker. In a small bowl, combine the waffle mix and water. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into a greased waffle maker (to prevent it from sticking and becoming difficult to remove – trust us on this) and cook until steam stops coming out of the waffle maker.
  2. Repeat 7 times (or until you have 2 for every chicken strip you have).
  3. Place a chicken strip on top of a waffle and top with the condiment of your choice. Place another waffle on top and enjoy a bite of your father’s day chicken & waffle sandwich.

5. Pancake Breakfast Sliders



  1. Combine pancake mix and water in a small bowl. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto a preheated griddle and let cook.
  2. While the pancakes are cooking, warm up the sausage patties in the microwave and make 6 sunnyside-up eggs in a skillet.
  3. Once cooked, flip the pancakes and remove them from the griddle. Place on a cooling rack while you’re waiting for the rest of the ingredients. Repeat until the pancake batter is finished.
  4. To make a father’s day breakfast slider, stack a pancake, sausage patty, slice of cheese, and egg on top of each other. When you’re ready to eat, top with a pancake; placing the pancake on top prematurely might cause the egg to burst early and make it soggy. Enjoy with ketchup, siracha, or whatever condiments you choose!
