Star Spangled Brownies

     Brownies are a stand alone, stand up, stand out dessert...BUT, whip them into star shapes and they totally steal the show.  These Patriotic wonders will add an extra element of celebration to any gathering.  Each of these 12 servings are only 170 calories, 19.6g carbs, 16g fiber, 3.6g net carbs, 7g protein, 15g fat for one Brownie and one Tablespoon Frosting.  (Note: unable to give exact macros for star shapes.  A alternate suggestion is to pipe decorative star shapes on the brownie square if you need exact macros.)  However you show love on Americas birthday, just make sure it includes Brownies with a splash of color in one form or other!
