Rosary Cake

It's been a few weeks since we enjoyed this delicious edible rosary, but you know that the entire month of October is dedicated to the rosary, so you still have a whole week to celebrate. I kept this year's rosary super simple -- with just two boxed brownie mixes baked in a large sheet pan (13 x 18). You could make a wonderful homemade Texas sheet cake, or this yummy Mexican sheet cake, or even a batch of Sugar Cookie Bars, or you can keep it simple and buy two boxes of brownie mix (the 13 x 9 size).

I made some homemade buttercream frosting (because I wanted the "beads" to pop), but you could use chocolate frosting as well. The Aves are just M&Ms and the Paters are Junior Mints. I "welded" two twix bars together (one cut in half) with some melted milk chocolate.

I didn't plan my rosary very well -- actually I didn't plan it all -- and that's why it looks a little crazy, but my kids are not perfectionists, so they didn't mind a bit.

Oh, this is fabulous, Barbara! I really like this idea because it's practical and not time consuming. For allergy reasons we can't do the m&ms, but I could use skittles quite nicely!
