I've learned a few things over this Labor Day weekend. Here we go.
1. All desserts are better in mini form. You will feel like you aren't really eating dessert. Or you will feel like you are, but having just a bite. Or you'll have 4 of them, which in turn equals a whole brownie and then this thing I learned really isn't anything I learned.
2. Shopping with two kids isn't that bad, when they each have individual seats and are strapped in and cannot move. The only problem is the shopping cart is about 50 ft. long and maneuvering the thing can be a challenge sometimes. BUT, you do get an arm workout. A plus, for sure.
3. Baking with the little man keeps you on your toes. If he's not snagging a bite, he's asking me a zillion questions, making me lose my concentration on how many scoops of flour I've already put into the bowl. I must have counted right because these brownies tasted great.
4. And lastly, having a Labor Day weekend with no plans doesn't make you a loser. It actually makes you feel proud that you can enjoy your family, the weather, the football, the food, the whatever, without having to leave the comforts of your own home. You should try it sometime.
Butterscotch Brownie Bites
1 boxed brownie mix (or homemade version)
1 c. butterscotch chips
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips
Mix brownie batter according to directions. Place half of the batter in a greased 8x8 baking pan. Pour in all butterscotch and dark chocolate chips. Spread on the remaining batter, making sure to cover all of the chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Which, can be a little misleading with all that melty butterscotch, chocolate chip goodness in the middle, but I'll let you be the judge.
Let cool and cut into mini-bites. Serve on a platter at you next party or gathering. Any leftovers (ha!) place in a Tupperware container and freeze. Perfect "bite" for another day.
