I don’t know why it took me so long to figure this out: brownie batter + petite fours cake pan = super easy and convenient.
I had to make these for a work event. The problem with brownies is they can get really heavy if you transport them in the glass pan. Or they become crumbly, if you cut them into squares and try to transport them another way. Also, I suck at cutting brownies. More brownie ends up on the knife than the plate.
And then this idea just came to me – put those suckers in the petite fours pan. These are the perfect event food because you can eat it with your hands. Also, since they’re smaller, it cut down the baking time by about 10 minutes.
Want to know the best part? You can put the finished product in a gallon-sized zip lock bag and throw them in your purse/car/whatever until you need them. They hold their shape really well. Then, take them out of the bag and stacked them neatly on a nice serving platter.
It was one of those moments where I said “Done and Done” while sweeping my hands together. Yep. I’m super cool.
