Fourth cut brownies into bite size squares.When oil is at desired temp put squares into oil and let fry for 3 mins.Take out with spoon or basket and let drain on paper towels.

In a 5 or 6 quart pot add tomato sauce and paste, brown on medium high heat for 20 minutes stirring constantly not to burn. Stir in water.
Add the crawfish, garlic, and saute mixture and reduce the heat to medium. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne. Cook the crawfish for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the parsley and green onions and continue cooking for 3 minutes. Serve over steamed rice.
