Brownie Dessert Shooters

I miss brownies.  When I first had to say goodbye to eggs and milk, I searched high and low for an egg free brownie.  I tried several recipes and none of them fit the bill.  Brownies seem to be the one thing that must have eggs.  Then a year later, when adding in the gluten free factor I tried a few more recipes from good cookbook authors.  But for me, the brownies just did not do it.  So I set out to make my own recipe.  The first time I tried something it worked.  But it must have been a fluke because follow up tries turned out dismal results.

Well, not wanting to waste even the “bad” brownies, I decided to make a little fun treat with the crumbles of brownies I had on hand.

Now you can use any brownie you can eat in this fun little treat.  Just crumble up your brownies to make this little shooter!  Yep, that is right, go ahead the buy the plastic little shot glasses in the wine section of your grocery store and fill them up.  This makes a great little treat to bring to a Christmas potluck or party.

All you need is some brownies, dairy free or regular vanilla yogurt, and some fresh raspberries.

So what do you think?  Are these cute or what?  Let me know in the comments section below!

Oh, and by the way, I’m still working on a good brownie recipe!

      They are great to take to a party. Years ago, I took a dessert to a potluck in little shot glasses (not allergy free at all back then), and they were the first dessert gone!
