Try It Tuesday

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.
Sigh.
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!)

Y’all, I’ve got some AWESOME finds today for Try It Tuesday! A sweet treat and a new take on Lunchables! 

Trying to eat healthy and stay away from desserts is so difficult. Thankfully, I found something low calorie the other day while grocery shopping:

 

These are AMAZING, you guys! They’re crunchy but super tasty and oh-so-chocolatey! Four squares is only 120 calories! Woo!

I blogged about “adult Lunchables” a few weeks ago. Lots of folks tried them and liked them, but my sister said, “Ew. Salami is gross.” That made me think, “Why isn’t there a turkey version of this for grown ups that isn’t loaded with sugar and garbage. Enter, these bad boys:

This was sooo good! And super filling! Plus, with no added hormones, no nitrites/nitrates, and no artificial colors or preservatives, it’s guilt free! 

Have you tried either of these? What were your thoughts? Share in the comments below! 

Try It Tuesday

Hello everyone!

Sorry there was no post yesterday. Between twisting my ankle going down the stairs before work, seeing the tragedy in Boston, and coming home to a migraine-suffering husband, I was in no mood to blog.

However, today’s “Try It” is absolutely what the doctor ordered. And when I say doctor, I mean me!

There’s a yummy treat floating around the Pinterest-sphere and I’ve been wanting to taste it. So, me, Mom, and BB tried it out!

Here’s what you need:

~cookie dough

~brownie mix

~Oreos

~muffin tin

~an oven

~salivary glands

First step: spray a little Pam in the muffin tin and press the cookie dough in the tin:

You can always just eat the raw dough. Unless you're pregnant. Womp, womp.

Next, drop Oreos in the tin:

Dad almost ate all the Oreos. Tricksy Hobbit.

Then, pour in the brownie batter:

Nom, nom, nom.

Nom, nom, nom.

 

Put the tin in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Then, you’ll have this:

I'm not going to lie. I ate it in two bites.

Guys. This “Try It” was a total success. I’m talking unicorns and rainbows with dancing ponies success! The tastiest thing I’ve tried since starting this blog!
