Yummy Bites

Oh, how I’ve been addicted to my mini muffin pan lately!!!  From banana bread to brownies, everything lately seems to taste better in miniature!  Just the other day I had a playdate arranged at a local park.  My friend was bringing the pizza and I decided on drinks and dessert for the kids.  I was short on time, so I decided to stop by the grocery store and my kids immediately spotted the brownie bites.  They did look delicious, but that wasn’t the first thing that came to my mind.  The first thing that struck me was the price!  Aren’t we supposed to be in a down economy???  Almost $5 for a small tub, that I knew would be polished off in less than 5 minutes!  But, again, I was short on time and in the basket they go.  I vowed as soon as I would get back home to make my own.  Now most brownie recipes call for unsweetened chocolate, but I only had a bar of bittersweet.  After a little searching I found these delicious brownies at Slow Like Honey.  I suppose any brownie recipe will do, but do try to make it into bites 🙂  You won’t be sorry.
