A Sweet Treat

For family night the other night, we planned on sitting down to watch The ‘Burbs. Do you remember that old 1980’s movie with Tom Hanks? My kids had never seen it and we happened to find a copy at my favorite book/CD store in New York City, since we really couldn’t find it anywhere else. Before we could gather together, I wanted to make a quick dessert for us.

This was super easy thanks to the an awesome product from Lekue. Lekue is one of my favorite brands of really useful kitchen wares. These silicone based products are incredible! I was excited to get to try out* their mini brownie mold.  This is also a silicone mold that has 24 squares perfect for miniature brownies.  I may be alone on this, but I have a terrible time making real brownies and having them come out perfectly cooked through.  There is always a section that is practically raw inside and I hate it when that happens.  My thought was if the brownies were smaller, perhaps they would cook all the way through, evenly.

Lekue Brownie Mold

I made some brownies using the recipe that comes with the mold and they turned out wonderfully!  Totally cooked through (yay!) and when they had cooled, they easily popped out of the mold because it is so flexible to manipulate.  My kids helped decorate the brownies with frosting and fresh raspberries and they were divine!  The perfect portion size for everyone, bite-sized goodness!

I loved how easy it was for my kids to help out and seriously, the whole process of making them was really fun.  We will be experimenting with different toppings the next time we make them.

You can order your own mini brownie mold from Lekue online, as well as one of the many other wonderful products they have to simplify your life.  I love their sandwich buddies for school lunches and their omelette cooker for super quick breakfasts during the school year, too!

  1. The Burbs!!! That is one of my favorite movies.. I think we may have a tray like that.. i like this treat!

  2. “The Burbs” is a classic! I absolutely love that movie. That brownie mold looks pretty amazing! The worst part of making brownies is trying to get them out of the pan.

  3. I really like the size of these brownies – it would be great to have this in our apartment, because I am trying to eat healthier, so I wouldn’t feel as guilty if I ate a smaller brownie!

  4. Wow, your recipe looks yummy and that’s not an ordinary brownie. Just by looking at the photos I can say it’s really delicious! The Lekue brownie mold looks classy and will make baking easier too because no need to use oil or glaze the pan. Non stick it is.

  5. wow those brownies look so cute and wonderful, sure they tasted delicious.. but isn’t that mould the same as the ice mould? looks same to me I have a red colored.. heart shaped.. 🙂

  6. Wow I love Brownies and adding strawberry on it will make the taste greater. I think I want that mold when I want to make my mini graham cakes to make them ready for bite size serving.

  7. Is that brownie mold silicone? I have been looking one of those to freeze individual ice cream cakes in.
