This is your new go-to for appetizers, party food, easy dips, and treat for the holidays. It takes no time to make Brownie Batter Dip!
Our girls have started cooking more and more and while I love it I also want to make sure that it always stays fun and not merely a means to eat. We found this darling new cookbook by Aimee from Like Mother Like Daughter, 50 Fixes for Brownie Mixes and knew it would be just perfect for Friday Movie Nights.
One of the most important things we want to teach our children is that family matters. We spend time together, we talk about silly stuff, real stuff and future stuff.
How do You Know When Brownies are Done?
For cake-like brownies, take them out of the oven when they just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan, or when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
For fudgy brownies, bake within the time range stated in the recipe.
For very moist brownies, take them out toward the minimum baking time. For moist, but less “wet” brownies, take them out toward the end of the time range.
A good friend once told me that her mother taught her that her siblings were her best friends and if ever it became clear that siblings weren’t being nice to each other or constantly wanting to be with friends and not family then they had a few days where it was sister time and they could only play with each other. What a lovely idea! To this day they are all the best of friends and that’s something to admire.
We now choose to do the same. In fact, our girls have been having sister dates, I take them somewhere and just sit back and watch them choose ice cream together or whatever.
I’m getting off topic, this brownie cookbook was a great chance for our girls to spend time together doing something fun. They can choose to cook from the cookbook whenever they want as long as it’s together. It’s so fun trying their new creations and this last weekend it was brownie dip.
Can Brownies Be Frozen After Baking?
To freeze brownies or bar cookies, cool brownies or bar cookies completely, but do not cut into individual servings.
Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap again with foil.
Freeze up to 3 months.
When ready to serve, thaw at room temperature before cutting into individual servings.
It is so good!! You may be tempted to leave out those mini chocolate chips, but do not do it!!! They take the recipe from good to amazing. It breaks up the flavor and I found myself digging for them.
The whole cookbook is loaded with beautiful pictures, easy recipes, and it’s all thanks to brownies-Cade’s Achilles heal. 😉 So maybe this Christmas do the same for your kids and just see what happens when they start making memories and yummy food together.
