16 brownies


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup pomegranate, seeds only, or more to taste

  • 16 candy stars


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a rectangular baking dish.

  2. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Make an indention in the middle and pour in water, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix everything well into a smooth batter. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the surface is no longer shiny and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool completely.

  4. Cut brownies into pointy triangles. Garnish each with pomegranate seeds and place a star-shaped candy on top.
