Tuxedo Brownie Bites

Tuxedo Brownie Bites

      Back in my single days, I attended a Pampered Chef party.  I had no idea what I was getting into.  The entire time, I was completely overwhelmed.  Mind you, back then, my cooking skills were limited to opening a can of Spaghetti O's and an occasional grilled cheese.   The gal hosting the party kept showcasing how to use all the nifty gadgets and how to cook this and that.  It was pretty much a foreign lecture for me.  I couldn't wait for the party to end.  But then.  Then, these babies were brought out, and after one bite, I wanted everything being sold.  Luckily, I was single, and broke.  Otherwise I would have bought the whole shebang.
      Since then, I have been looking for the recipe.  Finally found it.  It has been floating around Pinterest and other sites and is definitely worthy of being made.  I use My Mom's Brownies recipe for this, but to make life easier, you can definitely just use a package of brownies.

1 batch of favorite brownie or
1 package fudge brownie mix
