The edges are firmer and chewier than the center of the brownies, so they not only have a good texture to them, but they present a welcome contrast to a very fudgy brownie.

Poppin’ Hot Oven Mitt

Poppin' Hot

When you were a kid, you probably got a kick out of popping all the little bubbles on a sheet of bubble wrap.
