The other day, I saw a video on Facebook showing how to bake brownies using cookie cutters in the oven. Intrigued, I thought I’d try it out! After all, if you bake the brownies first and then cut them out, you’ve got a ton of oddly-shaped brownies left over!
First, I mixed up the brownie mix. I saw this tasty mix at Aldi and couldn’t pass it up!
Then, I laid out parchment paper on some cookie sheets and plopped the cookie cutters down.
After that, I poured some brownie mix into each cookie cutter and placed the cookie sheets in the oven.
After they baked for about 30-40 minutes, I took them out and let them cool. Then, I tried to pop the brownies out of the cutters.
Yeah. The video made it look A LOT easier. Certain shapes did better than others and some turned into just blobs of brownie.
I think it would just be easier to bake the brownies as usual and THEN cut out the shapes. I know what you’re thinking—“But what about the leftover brownies?”. And I have an answer: cake pops! Or truffles! (Okay, that was TWO answers. But still, you have options!)
