Frugal Tip: Make Brownie Bites at Home

My family loves brownie bites! For some reason I enjoy these so much more than brownies made in a 9 x 13 pan. I was first introduced to them years ago when purchasing a container of them in the bakery department of my local grocery store. The container contained only sixteen brownie bites and was priced at $4.49. A little high for something I could eat by myself in one sitting. lol :)

I'm much more frugal now and simply refuse to pay such a steep price. So, I've been making my own brownie bites at home. All you need is a mini muffin pan and box of brownie mix. Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the package and fill each muffin cup up with batter. I find it is best to grease the muffin cups to avoid the brownies sticking to the pan.

I
am able to get approximately 30 brownie bites from one box. I've been using up the brownie mixes that I purchased HERE for .50 cents. For my investment of .50 cents, I am able to get twice as many brownie bites for a fraction of the cost.

This is a great idea. It would be a good way to limit yourself from eating too much too! Thanks for linking up Sara!
