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:

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?
