How To Cut Brownies

I know, everyone is saying, "Is she serious? Just take a knife and dive in!! Or better yet, just grab a fork--who needs to take it out of the pan?!" Am I right?

Well, just the same, I occasionally like to share brownies with guests, so I figure it's best to cut them first.

Here's the secret weapon.

(Can you tell that they don't last very long around me?)
I didn't believe it at first, either, especially since I prefer brownies to be pretty gooey, and I often add chocolate chips on top to achieve that. But it really worked! A plastic knife has easily gone through my gooiest brownies without collecting all the scraps.

Give it a try! Any new time-saving/money-saving tips you've come across?


  1. This is something I have struggled with too! I like my browies gooey and yes they don't last long in my house either but on the off chance that I share my brownies (now who am I kidding?) I will remember this tip. In fact, can I share your tip on my blog?
    Thanks for sharing :D

  2. that brownine looks divine. my time saver tip is to vacuum your oven.....hope thta doesnt gross you out, it works fab

  3. Carrie--You are welcome to share my tip on your blog! Thanks!

    Widge--Very interesting!! Is that just for cleaning it or does it help to cook the food more evenly? You know, I'm notorious for wanting my stovetop to be clean, but I've never cleaned my oven. So I guess whatever the reason, I really should try it! Thanks for the tip!

  4. bars and brownies never last long around here either

  5. I've heard this before but have never tried it. How genius! I'm going to try it this weekend! Thanks.
