Brownie Bites

My 2-1/2 year old son Talal helped me bake these brownies. This was his first dish and he did absolutely wonderful. I just measured the ingredients for him and he was good to go. So not only can your kids help eat them but they can have fun making them as well. This is a easy and delicious brownie recipe and I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine did.
