Easy Mint Brownies – These shortcut brownies are the perfect answer to a last minute dessert or for a holiday bake sale. #ReynoldsHoliday
Are you baking for the holiday season yet? I am volunteering at a craft fair this weekend and I signed up for baking for the bake table. See, I do good deeds!
I like lazy baking. I don’t have much patience for exact measurements. For that reason, I start most of my baking projects with a boxed mix. I know a lot of you might not consider it baking from scratch, but as long as I add my own stir in or mix in, I consider it home made. I mean, I’m making it AT HOME. Isn’t that the exact definition? Now are you with me?
One of the things I think that will go well at the bake table are brownies. I can plate a bunch together and sell a few individually for those who like to snack while they browse (you know who you are). I associate mint flavored things with the holidays so I thought I’d start with a box of dark chocolate brownie mix and stir in some minty chips.
If you follow me on social media, you have definitely seen some of my baking fails. You can confirm that about 95% of them are because my brownies have stuck to the pan. I always spray my pan but it doesn’t seem to work for me. Well, not this time! No, sir! These babies aren’t sticking!
What’s the secret you ask…. I found these disposable baking pans that have parchment paper attached!!! How great is that? When I’m doing large batches of baking I like to use the disposable pans anyway because I only have 2 9×13 baking pans and I don’t want to have to wash them in between in batch. So, as you can imagine, I was pretty psyched to find the Reynolds Disposable Bakeware with Parchment Lining. Nothing sticks! And I didn’t have to use that sticky spray!
There are several different options for helpful bakeware by Reynolds now. You can click HERE to visit their page and see the other products. I think the next thing I will try is the Reynolds Disposable Bakeware with Carriers. Those will be great for transporting dishes to holiday parties!
