I had so much fun making these brownies! They were the first brownies I have attempted to make in muffin tins. I was a little nervous, but they turned out perfectly, and so yummy!! I will say I left them in for 25 minutes and felt they were a little overdone. I think 20 minutes would have been perfect. I highly recommend these for any holiday parties you have coming up! Who doesn't like brownies right?

XOXO,
