I think every party needs something sweet to round out the night.

So many people love sweet treats! I know I am the savoury girl and I will hang around the cheese and biscuits platter. But I know that for many people a meal or party isn’t over until the sweet bites have arrived.

There is a train of thought that a sweet treat also signifies the end of a party and is the food equivalent of turning the lights on at the school disco. I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE!!!

I like there to be food right up until the last guest goes! I never want someone to leave my house wishing for more food.

That is why no matter what kind of party I am having there will always be some extra cheese in the fridge and a tupperware of oven ready treats in the fridge/deep freeze.

More than once I have heated up some Thai meatballs at 1am! Or made my cheesy toast bites for the remaining few friends.

Brownies are a stable in our house, mostly because I love them! And I am convinced that everyone else does too!

Cut small and served at the end of a party they are the perfect sweet treat that you can guarantee will disappear.

My go-to gooey chocolate brownies and my white choc chip fudgy brownies are always on my list when I throw a party. But I don’t want to get known as a one-trick brownie pony so I have been experimenting with different brownie ideas. (And different sweet treat ideas!)

These Chocolate Brownies with Salted Panko were a slow burner, for me it was love at first bite. The kids were not convinced and Stew was firmly in the camp of ‘why do you have to give everything sweet a savoury/salty overhaul?’ (He is a total sweet tooth!!!!)

I almost decided against sharing them with you. But I know I am not alone in my love of sweet and salty treats.

So I made one more batch and handed it out to friends, there were a couple of people who didn’t enjoy the crispy salty edge, but overall the feedback was good.

So if you love super sweet sweet treats these might not be for you, but for those of you who love the mix then give these a go. I think they are divine salty sweet treats.
