Mini Muffins and Brownies

Mini Muffins and Brownies

My boys love the mini-muffins and mini-brownies that are sold in packs of 5 or so, but they can be very expensive when you are trying to stay on a budget. I have a few mini-cupcake baking pans and we use these with the brownie and muffin mixes. The brownies are amazing, chewy on the inside and each of them gets a nice little bit of the "hard" part that we all love. I make my own packs by placing 5 mini-brownies each in a ziplock storage bag and place them in the freezer.
