We celebrated a Fun, Frugal and Fabulous New Year's Eve last night.
Cards and Food!
A very nice time with my mom, my oldest son and his girlfriend. We had homemade pizza and some appetizers. Pretty much our typical New Year's Eve menu.
But .... as I was running through the grocery store to pick up the last minute ingredients I remembered a post that I had read here on Make It and Love It about Brownie Covered Oreos. So I grabbed a package of store brand Oreos and a brownie mix. A grand total of $4.00, (which could have been much cheaper if I had some couponed brownie mixes in my pantry ... shame on me!).
When I got home I took some time to peruse the beautiful tutorial here at Picky Palate.
Looked simple enough!
I was a bit nervous because my muffin tin looks a little vintage rather shiny and non stick like the one that she used, so I sprayed the heck out of it with some cooking spray. I dipped those bad boy oreos in the brownie mix and plopped them into the muffin pan. The only problem that I ran into was that then mix I grabbed was an 8X8 pan size. It was enough to cover two dozen cookies, but the last few were a little skimpy. Next time I will get the family size brownie mix.
I shoved them into the oven and baked 'em at 350 for 13 minutes. Ran a knife around the edge of each one as soon as they came out of the oven. Perfection. They popped out of there just like a non stick miracle.
