Thank you Intimate Weddings for writing this post on this wonderful bite-size brownie idea. I had to share it with my readers!

{images & recipe: intimate weddings, pan: wilton}

Here is how to do it!

1. Purchase all sorts of decorations, maybe stuck to just the color palette you are having for you event. Your favorite kind of chocolate that you want to melt {white, dark, milk} & don’t forget the cookie sticks!

2. Purchase your favorite brownie mix or use the following recipe:

Barb’s  Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1/2 cup butter (I use salted butter.)

2 scant cups brown sugar

2 eggs

1 cup flour

5 dessert spoons cocoa

1 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and add sugar. Cream well. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla. Mix in flour and cocoa.

3.  Spray mold with vegetable oil & fill 2/3 the way up.

4. Bake for 30 minutes @ 350 degrees. But check to make sure they aren’t burning. Wilton states 15-20 minutes. Stick a toothpick inside & see if it comes clean after 15 minutes & gauge.

5. Once done, please them on a rack to cool. While that’s getting done, melt your chocolate & prepare the decorations in little dishes to create an assembly line. Cut your sticks to the appropriate size if needed.

6. Once cool, dip a stick into chocolate and then insert it in the middle of the brownie bite {make sure you don’t poke through the other end}. Then dip the bite into your favorite chocolate flavor & decorations!

It’s that simple & I definitely plan on making these for the next house party I plan on throwing.

Ideas for presentation:

  • Fill a jar with your favorite candy, or preferred candy & stick them inside & place on the table.
  • A simple plate sprinkled with one of the decorations you used & place the brownie bites facing down {sticks up} on the plate.
  • Buy clear favor bags and place 3 bites per bag & tie with your favorite ribbon as a favor or as a giveaway for your party.

Thanks again Intimate Weddings for the wonderful idea…And for any readers who need more insight to the process, please visit their site for a more detailed explanation.

Organic.CupEcakes.Favors

A few months ago Ada Greenberg, of CupEcakes , paid me a visit with some delicious samples of her Vegan/Organic Cupcakes. I was a little skeptical with how tasty & moist they were going to be considering the vegan ingredients…but I have to say I pleasantly surprised at how delicious, fluffy & tasty they were.

All her cupcakes are made-to-order and are a fantastic favor idea for a wedding or any event really. She also has a cupcake kit where you can decorate them yourself and package it.  And if cupcakes aren’t your thing, then try her tasty cookies & muffins.

I also love the fact that she creates in “mini” versions too…package 2 mini cupcakes in a clear box & matching color scheme ribbon. Ada creates the packaging for you or you can purchase the kits for a DIY project.

Delicious creations such as:

Viola Vanilla Crunch: Vanilla cake, coconut frosting, topped with shredded coconut (Also available in chocolate cake)

Patty Kake: Chocolate cake, mint frosting, topped with chocolate ganache

Mmm….Mmm…Mmm….

I highly recommend her products because they are absolutely delicious…and being a foodie & a fanatical Cupcake lover I know your guests will enjoy them as much as I did…

Yummy.Edible.Favors

Ok, so we all know that favors are usually a touchy subject. With the couple and with the guests. I know the majority of wedding favors I’ve gotten I’ve thrown away. I mean how many more tiny picture frames or candles can I collect. However, edible favors & gifts have always been a favorite of mine. There is nothing like leaving the wedding and having a midnight snack…taking a bag and filling it with an assortment of candies…or going home and making a pretty tasty lemonade. So lets do away with all those old fashioned favors and indulge in some delectable edibles.
