When I was asked to bring goodies to our school's annual open house, my first thought was something small and something delicious - Brownie Bites!
But try as I may, I couldn't seem to get them out of the pan in one piece!
I thought mini-cupcake papers would do the trick, but the brownies stuck to them, too!
On the bright side, my kids saw the silver lining in my misfortune!
Alas, a batch of mini chocolate cupcakes slipped right out of the prepared pan.
I topped the mini cupcakes with star-tipped swirls of home-made cream cheese icing and
sprinkles in the school colors of red, white and blue.
The toppers were easy to make. I just printed enlarged school initials on cardstock
(that was my son getting fancy with the center one),
cut them into squares and taped a toothpick on the back.
Given more time, I would have backed the initial with a larger red piece of paper. This would cover the toothpick from the back side and provide a red frame for the initial. Unfortunately, I had already used up all my time on the multiple batches of brownies!
So here they are..... simple, sweet and delicious!
