  • 1 family size brownie mix such as Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix Family Size
  • 1 filled pastry bag of frosting such as Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bag
  • 7 edible decorations


  1. Bake brownies in a 9-inch round pan and allow them to cool completely.

  2. Using a pastry bag of frosting with a decorator tip, draw two lines perpendicular to each other across the circle of brownies (creating an X or cross). You will end up with 4 equal sections.

  3. Use edible decorations on each section of the brownies to create a visual representation of the numbers 1, 2, and 3. For example, on my brownies I had one item in one section, two items in another section, three items in another section, and finally one item in the last section.
  4. Tape down a pencil next to the lazy Susan to use as a pointer. Place the brownies on the center of the lazy Susan. Use a small piece of double-sided tape under the pan if it is slippery. 

  5. Spin the lazy Susan.  Record or show on your fingers the number that the pencil points to. Spin again.  Add this number to the first number you spun. Show the sum on your fingers or by writing it down.
