It’s that time of year where the days run together & there seems to be a shortage of hours in a day. I know that my baking list is long & so when I can find little ways to speed up the time it takes to make recipes- I am happy to do it. So yeah, sometimes I use box mix for some things. Not everything has to be from scratch. But that doesn’t mean it’s all bad. I decided to replace the eggs, oil & water usually used in brownie mix with some healthier ingredients to create these Pumpkin Pecan Brownie Bites. They are so moist & fudgy – incredible! Definitely easy & a crowd pleaser. I love Yummy Bar Recipes!
I decided to add a light caramel glaze & pecans on top. Then cutting them into bites made these the perfect party dessert.
To make – I used the 9×13 cake pan from the set by Cake Boss sold on Hayneedle.
Top quality & definitely compare well to my professional pans.
