TWD: Brownie Buttons

Yes, I am still here. ;)

I think today has been the most I have baked/cooked in one day in a long time. (And it was only brownie buttons and zuccini carrot bread!

What I loved about these brownies is that they were quick. It's not like I can't spare the time for elaborate desserts, I can. But mid-summer when its 95 degrees and humid I just dont want to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen over a hot stove!

These brownies weren't bad. They are crunchy on the outside and a tad firm in the center for my taste (I like my brownies gooey and fudgy). I didnt add the orange zest or the white chocolate to the top. I didnt feel like an orange chocolate dessert today, nor do I really care for white chocolate. I will say I think I over baked them a tad, which is never good for a brownie. this could have contributed to the lack of gooey texture. Im thinking my mini muffin pan from Williams Sonoma is bigger than average because a few tablespoons of batter didnt fill the cups 3/4 full.

These little bites are perfect for on the go with little fuss involved (including cutting). Just remember to keep an eye on them. They cook up fast!
