I find I take full advantage of my friends growing older. It’s the opportune time to bake some treats that aren’t up to me to consume in entirety. As a close friend of mine recently turned 21, I decided to reap the benefits.
When baking for a party there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration. Firstly, it was to be held in a bar on a Friday night so it was perhaps not the best place for a full birthday cake that needs slicing and dishing out. Secondly, as I wasn’t familiar with all the guests, I had to settle on something that would be enjoyed by the majority- and who doesn’t like brownies? Especially brownies in bite size pieces that make you feel a little more at ease about packing on the pounds. Top that with Oreo icing? I think they did the job.
So, since I have my go-to brownie recipe, I baked a big batch and then used a small cookie cutter to cut out perfect bite-sized rounds. I then whipped up some buttercream icing which I crumbled mini Oreos into and finally topped each bite with a whole mini Oreo. Placing each in a cupcake liner to reduce mess made them just that little more party-friendly.
Enjoy, you little rascals x
