Perfectly Cut Bars & Brownies

Cutting brownies with plastic knife   I have discovered the secret to perfectly cut bars & brownies! I didn't actually discover it myself, but I did hear it on TV somewhere...probably the Food Network. Anyway... the secret is to use a plastic knife! You know... the disposable kind. Shocked? I was too at first, but after trying it, I am no longer a skeptic. In fact, I keep a plastic knife in my kitchen for the sole purpose of cutting my bars and brownies. It does help to let them cool before cutting as well, but even when they are warm, a plastic knife works quite well.
    My husband always takes brownies to work for his office parties, and many of his co-workers have said to him, "I just don't get how your wife cuts the brownies so perfectly!" Well... the secret is out! But... don't take my word for it. Try it yourself!
   Here are my Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars being cut with my plastic knife while still warm and with frosting.

   A quick update... since I first posted this, I discovered that the Aldi brand fudge brownie mix now has this same tip on the back of their box! Word travels quickly when someone discovers an awesome tip! Perfectly cut brownies
