Looking for an easy bake that’ll please everyone? You can’t go wrong with good dessert bars and brownie recipes. These treats are simple to make, but it never hurts to have a few specialty dessert bar and brownie baking tools on hand (in addition to the must-have baking supplies) to make these bars their best yet.
Let’s be honest, the most important thing when it comes to brownies (and most desserts) is the chocolate! Make sure you’re getting the best of the best by picking up a pack of Baker’s unsweetened baking chocolate ($15 for 4). It’s so good, it was awarded the top spot in our baking chocolate taste test.
Powdered Sugar Duster
A pan of brownies or lemon bars is never complete without a good dusting of confectioner’s sugar. Be sure to have a small dusting wand ($10) on hand to give all your bars that finishing touch. These are the amazing brownie recipes you’re not making (yet!).
Corner Brownie Pan
Okay, we know it’s another pan but if your family fights over the corner pieces, this is a must. The Corner Brownie Pan ($25) from Bakelicious makes 12 crispy, crunchy brownie squares that your kids won’t be able to keep their hands off of. If you’re short on time, check out our favorite brand of boxed brownie mix.
Compact Food Chopper
So many of our favorite bar recipes include handfuls of chopped nuts—especially these nut bar recipes. Chopping nuts, chocolate or dried fruits by hand can be a bit fussy, but the job doesn’t seem to require a hefty food processor. That’s where a compact food chopper ($40) comes in especially handy. It’ll make quick work of chopping up all your favorite mix-ins.
