USA Pans Brownie Bites Review

I was so super excited to get to try this new USA Cake Pan, which is available at Bed, Bath and Beyond. First of all, I love how heavy it is. It's solid and sturdy and I know it will be in my kitchen for YEARS which is really important to me. Since I have been married almost 20 years ago, I haven't really ever splurged on kitchen products, and when I think back, all the money I wasted by buying "cheap" products, I could have saved all that and just bought nice, durable, built-to-last products for the same price. 

The Brownie Bites pan has 20 wells, and it is just the perfect size for a box of brownie mix. 

The same day I received the pan, I couldn't wait to try it! I made brownies that night, it was so easy! The brownies came out taller than I had expected (not flat like most brownies).

The kids had so much fun with these, I love that it was a project we can do together and it's something different than basic brownies and all it takes is a box of mix! 



I can also say these work GREAT for cake mixes and muffin mixes. I tried both and they were perfect, my kids LOVED the square cupcakes!

You can purchase USA Pans here, or at Macy's or Bed, Bath and Beyond. 

Here is a great recipe if you are adventurous and don't like using a boxed mix. 

Thick and Chewy Brownies
Pan: Brownie Bite Panel Pan - Brownie Bite Panel Pan

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    3 eggs
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a USA Pan™ Brownie Bite Panel Pan with a non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, blend melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually blend into the egg mixture. Fill each prepared brownie well two-thirds full with the batter.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean. Do not overbake. Let brownies cool completely and then run a plastic knife around the edges of the brownies to loosen. Gently remove brownies from pan.
