How to Keep Brownie Bites From Sticking

By Penelope Dene

Brownie bites are the perfect sweet treat for those moments when you need a small chocolate fix. The brownie bite's small size allows you to indulge without ruining your diet. Brownie bites should come out of the oven in one piece, without sticking to the pan. If your brownie bites stick, you will end up with a crumbly mess. By taking extra precautions when preparing your brownie bites, your dessert will come out crumble-free.
