Happy Brownies and Sundae Toppings

Okay, raise your hand if you're a brownie or bar cookie lover.  Me too.  But really raise your hand if you try and go out of your way to avoid edge pieces.  (See my hand waving enthusiastically in the air?)

I admit it:  if I am at an event with brownies, I slowly scope out the plate before choosing one without an edge.  Edges are hard and can be dry and crumbly, while the inner pieces are chewy-ooey good.

Here's a simple tip for a plate full of edge-less brownies.  First, cut them like so:

Remove the edge pieces, cutting each rectangle in half to make mini-squares.  Freeze the squares, keep the brownies to serve with pride:

After you are done enjoying your brownies, use the brownie edge mini-squares as a perfect topping for a sundae or ice cream treat.  The edge pieces hold up well to the ice cream, and are a fun extra for your little sweet pea:

See that?  Your bowl of ice cream just went from "thanks mom!" to "Wow, thanks mom, can I fold the laundry for you?"*

Life is sweet,

*Results not guaranteed.  But one can dream, right?

That is a GREAT idea!
I too love the middle gooey pieces. I also love brownie sundaes. This is perfect for those of us who hate to waste food.

Or, just marry someone who likes the edge pieces, like I did! :)

I LOVE the corners!!!! Corners of brownies, corners of square frozen thin crust pizzas, corners of PB&J....I love corners! Those corners & edges in the ice cream are delightful to me!!!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
