Packable Brownies

Talk about a fun tasty bite. These Packable Brownies are perfect for picnics, lunches, tailgating parties etc.  Hide them in the freezer for those unexpected or expected brownie attacks. They are also a perfect portion for hot fudge brownie cake. Just make these--I am sure you will find many ways to enjoy them.
Thanks Mary from One Perfect Bite for another incredible recipe.


Packable Brownies
1 square butter, 8 tablespoons
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, toasted and chopped (yes, toast the nuts--it really makes a difference)

Microwave butter and chocolate--I have a wonderful setting on my microwave just for this purpose. If you don't have a chocolate setting, microwave for about 2 minutes, stir until smooth. Cool slightly.
In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, eggs, vanilla, baking powder and salt. Add the melted chocolate mixture and stir. Gently stir in the flour with a rubber scraper until just incorporated.
Using a large scoop portion batter in a 12 cup muffin tin that has been sprayed with Pam. Sprinkle nuts on top. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Let cool slight and remove from pan. Now you can make 12 people very happy!

What a good idea! You are so smart to bake individually like that. So much easier to serve and pack up. School lunches here I come! Krista @ A Handful of Everything
