In addition to posting about the business and how things are going, I’ll be doing some product trials along the way. My first is with a Wilton Bite-Size Brownie Squares 24-Cavity Silicone Mold. I tried Martha Stewart’s butterscotch blondie recipe, which I think I’ll need to tweak. But they came out great!
I really liked how easy it was for the blondies to come out of the tray. The size of each piece was pretty good for serving and catering events too. For $9.99, its definitely worth it. Clean up is not great, unless you have a dishwasher. And definitely get Pam or similar cooking spray; the old fashioned butter shmear is not really optimal. I got mine at Michael’s, but the link above can bring you to Wilton’s website to buy it directly.
I have to say, I didn’t really like the blondie recipe. There was way too much salt and the pastry was a little dense, especially since I baked them individually and much smaller than the recipe calls for. I think I would modify with a less salt (about 1/4 teaspoon instead of 3/4); the butterscotch chips and Heath bar bits are already a little salty. I would add a little milk, too, to fluff up the pastry. They were still good, though!
