Teeny Tiny Ambrosia Coconut Brownies

Perfect for tea parties or just for when you feel like being ‘teeny tiny’. Tonight was my ‘teeny tiny’ me time.  That and I’m still trying to come up with quick little treats for next weeks party.

To start, find your favorite brownie recipe.

I went with an oldie but goodie.

1/2 c. melted butter

1 c. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa

1/2 c. flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking powder


Directions


Greese and flour a cookie sheet…yes, it must be a cookie sheet. A small brownie pan will cause the brownies to be too thick for the purposes of this recipe. We want ‘teeny tiny’. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla to the melted butter. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients: cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. Spread onto cookie sheet…but not to the edges! It’ll find it’s way there on it’s own. We want it thin…

Obviously, because it’s going to be thin, take about half the baking time off. This brownie recipe called for 25-30 minutes. So I baked them for 15.

Dip a knife in some crisco to help with cutting. Cut cooled brownies into tiny squares.


For toppings….



Buttercream Frosting, Ambrosia and Coconut

For added ~cuteness~ pick up some tiny appetizer dishes at a local craft store, maybe some cute little tags and get ready for the smiles that come with ‘teeny tiny’ things in general.

  1. Can’t eat cake but I love the setup. Lovely. Will have frosting though and you used my favourite phrase “tea party.” Have a great weekend.
