My coworkers would like me to make faux "special" brownies. The requirements are that the brownies look the part and still taste good but don't have any actual "herbs" in them. My first thought was crushed dried mint leaves. We also came up with colored coconut. I'm going to try the mint leaves, but will the food coloring hold up on the coconut in the brownies? Or would I be better off mixing undyed coconut into the brownie with some dyed coconut lightly mixed on top? Or are there any other suggestions I could use? I also thought of cat nip but that doesn't seem like it would taste good.
(I'm using code just in case I can't put the real word. LOL)
