The more than half missing brownie buttons shown in the photograph above is evidence of how delicious they are. I made a tray of 24 "buttons" allowing them to cool before finishing. I was elsewhere in the house when my chocolate-loving husband came up to me offering confession. He stated that I might be alarmed by how many brownie buttons were gone from the cooling tray. This is what I found, 14 of 24 eaten! I was not alarmed, but simply amused.
Good thing this recipe is easy and comes together quickly. The recipe is from a Dorie Greenspan cookbook titled Baking From My Home to Yours. The book offers great recipes and insight for every home baker. It has beautiful photos of the baked items and is clearly written with tips for success.
The brownie buttons are a rich "one-bite" sweet treat. They are quite good on their own, but I like to top them with melted chocolate to take them up to the next level.
