Brownie Bites

Ya’ll. I think I finally figured it out. These brownie bites will have you saying O-M-Goodness all day long.

If you’ve read my recent post on brownie bites and my conundrum on getting them to come out of a pan, then you know that this is truly a *win* in my book! I stinkin’ love brownie bites — particularly the ones from whole foods, so in my vein attempts to re-create them, I think I finally got *close*.

It is truly challenging to try and re-create something that is mass produced in a factory at home. Sometimes things taste almost exactly alike and others, well…it just doesn’t work out.

But! I hit pretty close with these little bites of heaven. Essentially I did a bunch of research on “cake” brownies. I usually gravitate more towards fudgy brownies when I make a whole pan of them, but I knew that these little bites needed to “hold up” in the pan in order for them to stay together when I turned them out.

Next up, was that I actually needed to be able to get them out of the pan — see my previous post on the subject if you’re interested. So I essentially just greased the crap out of my pan with cooking spray. I probably used up half the can on these suckers, but they weren’t going to get stuck again! I also baked them for just a bit longer than I thought was necessary, just so they would set up in the pan.

Getting them out was a breeze — *whew*

So now, you too can enjoy these little delights! Happy Baking!
