Gourmet Brownie Bites

I recently treated my self to this...I still have undecided feelings about baking with silicone. It works well enough but it is plastic and a little wobbly for my little hands. It worked really well for making the chocolate tops and I do like how easily it cleans.

Here is a super brownie recipe that makes just enough to fill up all these holes, don't you just love it when you use up ALL the batter! Be prepared for 2 dozen yummy bite size delights!
Here is the recipe

The Nana's 60th birthday is just around the corner and I'm trying to think of all her favorite things to bake up. She doesn't want a party but Yoda and I want to make her feel special and remind her how loved she is. Nana loves her chocolate brownies and I just might be able to personalize them with these yummy chocolate "D's".
Do you know Nana? Please help Sassy compile a list of her favorite things!

Nana loves Yoda, her grandkiddies, making fabulous things and wonderful parties! She used to love Charlie and Jean Nate perfume, but I'm sure she's moved on to something new.
