Solution to Cutting Brownies: Brownie Bites

Cookies 'n Cream Brownies

I have a confession to make: The number one thing I would always dread the most in the kitchen used to be cutting brownies. Just ask my husband. He would watch me in the kitchen, staring down my enemy as I crafted ways to conquer my challenge.

With every new try, more often than not, I seemed to fail miserably. The brownies were always super tasty but they were hardly ever appealing to the eye. With all that being said, I am excited to say that I conquered my battle last weekend. My solution? I used muffin tins instead of a baking pan.

The end result: Super cute brownie bites that looked and tasted delicious!

The following are some tips and tricks to use when trying to cut nice and neat brownies:

  • Cool completely and then cut squares
  • Cut squares with a plastic knife
  • Use a pizza cutter/wheel to cut squares
  • Line pan with foil
  • Use disposable foil pans
  • Let hot water run over your knife, dry off and then cut squares
  • Butter the knife
  • Or, in my case…use a muffin tin to do away with all forms of cutting and slicing!
