I've had a sweet tooth lately... well, that is really nothing new but I usually get my fix with our candy dish at work with a rolo or two. Do you have a candy dish at work? Or at home? Us girls in the office have our favorites - in no particular order - twizzlers, crunch bars and rolos. But we have learned that we have to put the candy dish away at the end of the day... sometimes we get some (hungry) cleaning elves who deplete our supply!
I decided to do some baking this week because I wanted to send some treats to work with the DIY Guy. I had seen some cute brownie bites somewhere and thought what a perfect bite size treat. What I hadn't realized is that I bought the wrong size pan - I think my clue should have been there were only 12 slots! I had meant to buy the mini pan. Oh well, we have this batch at home (9) and I will be making more to send to his work soon.
Don't these look nice and gooey! And the best part, baked in the middle is a rolo. John even had his with a side of ice cream.... that really kicked it up a notch!!
