brownie button recipeAnother outstanding Dorie recipe.  Guess what?  I am going to a Dorie book signing this weekend.  I cannot wait.  My sister called me a borderline Dorie stalker, but what does she know?

These little brownie buttons took no time to make and are super festive looking.  I put the sprinkles on as an afterthought, but I much prefer them plain white.  There is something so simple and elegant about the plain white tops.  They are the perfect little bite and full of rich chocolate and a slight crunch from the white chocolate.  These will definitely be making an appearance during the holidays at my house.

Are you following along with the 12 Weeks of Cookies?  It is really fun to add my link and see what everyone else has come up with.  I love getting new ideas and remembering old treats that I have forgotten about.  It really is getting me in the mood for the holidays.  And that is no easy feat, Christmas is not my favorite holiday.

This recipe is adapted from Dorie’s recipe.  I doubled it and am giving you the doubled proportions.  Dorie also adds the zest of one orange and 2 teaspoons of sugar.  She combines the zest and sugar in a small bowl and rubs them together to release the oils in the zest.

brownie button recipeThis week I used this cute clear paint can.  I cut a strip of dotted card stock and wrapped it around the base of the can.  I added ribbon adhesive to the top of the paper.  I put a cute sticker in the middle and added some ribbons to the sides of the can.  Done and done.

brownie button recipeWouldn’t you be happy if these two brought you this cute can of Brownie Buttons?  I sure would.  But I am a little biased.
