Honestly, I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this week’s recipe.  I mean, the title sounds great – ‘Brownie Buttons’ – pretty cute, right? But I’m super-duper picky when it comes to brownies and I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about mini-mini brownies.  A lot of members had said this recipe didn’t quite do it for them, or that they stuck, or the glaze wasn’t good…I didn’t have very high hopes.


But, as it turned out, these were really, really good! I don’t know about everyone else’s, but mine had sort of a chewy, almost crunchy outside, with a really soft, fudgy inside….I wan’t expecting that! I loved the texture of these!  Instead of the white chocolate glaze (I can’t stand white chocolate), I used a little dusting of powdered sugar, which really went well with the bitterness of the chocolate. These were just all around good-  fun to make, fun to eat and super cute to boot!


Thanks to Jayma of Two Scientists Experimenting in the Kitchen for picking this week’s recipe – check out her blog and get the recipe. These would be so fun for kids or to take to work – easy and fun to eat! I’ll definitely be keeping this recipe close by!




  1. Mine turned out exactly the way you described it! crisp on the edges with a soft fudgey centre. PERFECT! love the photos of yours too with the dusting of icing sugar. how lovely…

  2. Those are absolutely lovely! I also opted for the powdered sugar on top and thought it went perfectly with these guys.

  5. These look wonderful! Love the dusting of powdered sugar. I think I’ll try that next time instead of the white chocolate.

  7. Your brownie buttons look, and sound, perfect. I wish I knew your secret — mine didn’t turn out nearly as chocolaty as I’d hoped they would.

  8. White chocolate isn’t.

    I frosted mine with orange cream cheese frosting.

  9. Me too – the beau said it was crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside!
    I love how yours turned out and it looks so pretty on the blue dish!

  10. This is the way I make all my brownies because everyone fights over the corner pieces when I use a square pan. This way, everyone gets corners!
